Prewar view of a German battleship passing through the Kiel Canal near Rendsburg. Anyone able to help translate the old German it would be appreciated.

Nothing military on the back, I'm afraid, just greetings from a group of friends to the first correspondent's sister - about the most interesting aspect is the sisters' surname:

Frl. Amanda Lembcke :o

Adr. Herrn R.Speck [c/o Herr R. Speck]

Strübbeln [sic]

Kr. Hemme (Holstein) [=Strübbel, Kreis/district of Hemme, Holstein - only about 25 miles from Rendsburg]

Einen schönen Gruß

aus der ??Jodfeier

sendet deine Schwester

Frieda.

Einen schönen Grußt [sic] sendet

dir M. Reimers.

?Aufrecht bis zum ??? und freundlichen

Regards from M. Reimers.
