SMS Gefion
A 1902 lithograph showing SMS Gefion, an unprotected cruiser of the Imperial German Navy completed in 1895. Gefion was involved in the Battle of Taku Forts (1900) before being modernized. During World War I, Gefion served as a barracks ship. In 1920 it was sold for service as a freighter, only to be scrapped three years later.

Though Gefion was intended for service in the German colonial empire and as a fleet scout, the design was unsuccessful in both roles and soon replaced by the newer Gazelle class of light cruisers.Lithograph: Hugo Graf; restoration: Adam Cuerden

Korvettenkapitän Waldeyer[edit]

According the german "Ehrenrangliste der Kaiserliche Marine" from 1930 a german Korvettenkapitän Waldeyer is not listetd. I think, its a mistake and a confusion with the later Fregattenkapitän Hugo von Waldayer-Hartz. MfG URTh (talk) 10:42, 13 May 2016 (UTC)

No, it's one and the same person. Waldeyer's father was elevated to hereditary nobility in 1916, thus the change in name. ÄDA - DÄP VA (talk) 18:23, 13 May 2016 (UTC)
