Yes, a Flugsicherungsschiff, but I'm sorry, I have to disagree with your identification.

In WEDEL and RICHTHOFEN, the crane was further aft. This is one of the quartet MAX STINSKY / KARL MEYER / IMMELMANN / BOELCKE
Thanks for your answers

Hello. Hope I can interject a request on this thread, please. I would like to know something about the ships I have attached here. I really only need to know if they are German or some other country's craft. I think these are older ships, early 1900s. I also think that one can recognize a major German seaport in the first shot. Navy is not my forte, and I admit that I am seeking an easy out on the info. I would be also happy to be pointed in a direction in which I could track down my info.

thank you, Garlock

I believe you‘re right. I read it as “minensuchboot Togo in ?...fahrt”. She is the former norwegian boat “Otra”.
