Hi Looking for information on the German merchant ship SPREEWALD after she was captured by HMS BERWICK September 10. 1914

Search for HMS Lucia on the internet, there is plenty of information about her career as a submarine depot ship and repair ship, her sale in the late 1940s to continue her career as a merchant Ship, "Sinai" , and eventual scrapping in La Spezia in 1951

Super photograph Ray. I love the union Jack on the bow.

Just for interest here is a picture of Spreewald when in the colours of the Hamburg American Packet Co. flying the Handelsflagge, German Mercantile Ensign, at the stern! Quite a few changes were made to refit her as a Depot Ship but still recognisable.
