Need help finding a ship...ww i

Post by spec14 » 03 Dec 2022 16:11

Greetings, been a while since I visited here. I need some help finding info about a ship.....it's not listed in any online records about German naval forces that I have seen. It's the SMS "Inkula". I know it existed because I have a photo of the crew members with written notes on back. For some reason I cant post it here....! I beleive this ship was the captured SS "Pallanza", a british ship, and was used as a mine ship "Mothership". Maybe operating out of Pillau about 1915-16. It may be that the photo I have is the rescued crewmembers of SMS "INKULA" its hard to tell.

This must be the ship in question. Most of the data seems to fit. https://www.historisches-marinearchiv.d ... value=1565
