This 10,000 ton reefer .that was to become a victim of the Admiral Graf Spee
if you compare the photo,s of the ship, pre war in light condition and at the moment destruction started she seems to have gained a pair of kingposts aft behind the funnel! Built in 1921 she was fitted with the Maierform bow in 1934 .Photo credits to the Blue star line site & the book Deutschland class ships by Koop & Schmolke
