WWII German Cruiser DKM Emden
by David J LaPell

These photo's came from a former officer on board that was there from the late 1920's to at least 1941.

Emden in San Diego in 1929  Emden sometime in the 1930's in Germany
Emden alone and in port 
Alongside 2 merchant ships in Wilhemshaven On tour in St. Thomas
a nice stern and  bow shot,
A speech that was read by Adm Donitz to the crew (he was a former Captain of the Emden).
I dated the photo between refits when the mast was changed as about mid 30's.
