I don’t know deployment at Korea, Taiwan and the Penghu Islands;.jerryasher wrote: ↑06 Apr 2020 03:56Other ships frequently were just over the horizon, stationed in Korea, the leased area in southern Manchuria, Taiwan, the Penghu Islands or coming or going into Hong Kong (The Crown Colony of Great Britain), Japan's war time ally. Were they still the 1st Dispatched Squadron?
Ships stationed in Lushun
9th 艇隊 Teitai Torpedo Boat Unit
第1特務艦隊 1st Special Duty Fleet
Activated on 7 February 1917.
Egaged in convoy in the Indian Ocean.
Stationed in Hong Kong and Cape Town
The German Navy was not very active in the Indian Ocean, so the mission was not so tight.
Reorganized into 1st China Dispatch Fleet in August 1918 and moved to Shanghai.
(2nd Special Duty Fleet was dispatched to the Mediterranean to escort convoy. The dead persons are buried on Malta.)
Composition of 1st Special Duty Fleet on December 1917
