Imperial German naval ensign (1903-1921)

Imperial German naval ensign 1903-21 pattern, reputedly belonging to SMS 'KÔòá┬¬nigsberg' 1905, scuttled in Rufiji River in 1916. The tattered battle ensign, worn during 'KÔòá┬¬nigsberg's' action with British monitors, is recorded as being presented to her commander, Captain Max Looff. Colonel Richard Meinertzhagen (1878-1967) claimed in his book 'Army Diary 1899-1926' that this is a spare ensign captured from a German infantry company that included members of her crew. They were ambushed by Meinertzhagen's agents after the destruction of the ship. R.M. Marston in a letter of February 1996 disputed this claim.
