4.1 in light cruiser SMS Konigsberg trapped in the Rufiji delta in what is now Tanzania, 1915.  After several British attempts to destroy her, shallow bottom monitors finally succeeded late that year.  Her guns were salvaged by her crew, which fought on with German East African forces in one of the least known campaigns of the war.

The Battleship TEXAS is the last dreadnought in existence in the world, a veteran of Vera Cruz (1914) and both World Wars, and is credited with the introduction and innovation of advances in gunnery, aviation and radar. Having been designed in the first decade of the 20th century, (keel laid in 1911 and completed in 1914), and having seen action in some of the most intense and critical campaigns of WWII, she is an important piece of our naval and maritime history.

A beautiful -- and rare COLORISED* shot! of the British battleship HMS Erin, from 1916. She was a 27,500-ton dreadnought originally commissioned by the Ottoman Empire, building in a British shipyard. The battleship, originally to be named 'Reşadiye' for the Ottoman Navy, was renamed (after seizure by the Royal Navy) HMS Erin, and she joined the British Grand Fleet shortly before the British declaration of war against Germany on August 5, 1916.
