    Default Patriotic postcard U-Deutschland

    Cargo Submarine U-Deutschland Artifacts and Model
    In looking through the postcards that I have of U-Deutschland I came across this patriotic type postcard which I have not seen elsewhere. It obviously is an artist's rendition of the U-Deutschland penetrating the British blockade. The postcard was cancelled in Wilhelmshaven on August 23, 1916 addressed to Hamburg.

    Tom, To your recent comment in post 1148, viz: "Bow view of U-Deutschland with tugs tied up port and starboard. The tug on the starboard side is probably the [THOMAS F. TIMMINS]... at Baltimore." I'd like to add comment that we too can see, in your photo view, the mighty little launch EFCO, outbound of the TIMMINS.

    The TIMMINS briefly left DEUTSCHLAND, sometime after their duo near-midnight arrival on July 9th at the Quarantine anchorage just beyond the 1916 city limits of Baltimore. TIMMINS beat feet into the McLean pier, at South Locust Point, in order to drop off Jimmy Fesmire, that he might fetch the EFCO and pilot her back out to the anchorage while DEUTSCHLAND awaited the health department officials to issue a clean bill of health to Captain Koenig and crew.

    The Merchantman DEUTSCHLAND arrived at her maiden voyage designation mid-morning July 10th. 1916. The SS NECKAR, a vessel that would serve, as berthing for the submersible's crew during her warm July stay at Baltimore, arrived the following day, being brought in from its own anchorage off of Thompson's point, near modern-day SeaGirt Marine Terminal.

    Fesmire, who was standing watch at the time aboard the Tug THOMAS F. TIMMINS, is credited with being the first man on this side of the Atlantic to have spotted the subsea freighter entering the capes at the entrance to Chesapeake Bay.
