    Thumbs up Hermann Friese service record

    is there any information regarding these ships and there service? are there any photos of them or any of the crews.

    he served on the Battlecruiser Derfflinger during WW1, which saw a lot of action in the North Sea during that time, including the Battle Of Jutland. She was the second ship in the battlecruiser line and was hit 21 times during that great sea battle and 157 men were killed on the ship, the highest number of casualties on any ship that wasnt sunk.

    The second sheet covers his actual service.,taken from his paybok details in order to prove his entitlement. As you will see, he joined the Navy as a young man in 1906 as part of the Ship's Youth detachtment. It goes on to list all the ships he served on, the Charlotte, the Medusa, the Burgermeister, the Seeadler, the Dfr Prinzregent u. Brandenburg, the Von der Tann, u. Schwaben, the Konig Wilhelm, the Viktoria Luise. These will be fairly easy to research. It then goes on to list his ranks and finally his awards, EKII, Long service cross etc.

    He served throughout WW1 and was discharged in 1921

    Hi John, have you looked here? With a simple search online I found many images of ships he served on.

    Kaiserliche Marine

    You will not find anything else about his service record other than what you already have. That is about as good as it gets.

    Please try and limit the number of threads you post about the same topic. One thread placed in the correct forum is all you need. Multiple threads do no good.

    Cheers, Ade.
