HMAS Sydney, November 1914Download nowEnlargeShow similar images

Title: HMAS Sydney, November 1914

Description: The damaged deck of the Australian cruiser, HMAS Sydney after a sea battle against the German cruiser, SMS Emden at the Battle of Cocos on November 9, 1914 during World War I. The Emden (launched in 1908), a light cruiser of the Imperial German Navy, was assigned to the German East Asian Station at Tsingtao at the beginning of WWI, and served as a sea raider, sinking more than thirty Allied warships and merchant vessels in Pacific and Indian Ocean waters, until it was encountered and attacked by the Australian light cruiser Sydney (launched in 1912), which outgunned the Emden with its longer range guns (eight six-inch guns), striking the Emden with more than 100 shells, wrecking the German cruiser and forcing it to run aground on the reef at North Keeling Island. When the Emden refused to lower its flag, the Sydney resumed shelling the ship until Captain Karl von Muller struck his flag. Casualties on the Emden were 135 dead and sixty-five wounded. Muller and surviving crew members were made prisoners. Four sailors on board the Sydney were killed in the action.
