Barque "Dee"

I am looking for any information on the above vessel, it has fairly strong connections to my family history. I know that she was in London October 1893 and circumnavigated the globe arriving back in the UK in September 1894. I have been told that she was sunk by a German raider in World War 1 in the Indian Ocean.
A photograph or picture would be great, but any information would be appreciated
Thanks
Keith

Now that was a quick response, I have been looking all over for a photograph of her!
You don't know who owned her by any chance?
Thanks

Very many thanks for all the information.
My Mother's stepbrother, David Belsham, served as 2nd Mate on her in 1893/4, and was drowned in the South Pacific effecting a rescue from the dismasted "Cambrian Chieftain" for which he was awarded a postumous MMSA medal.
Regards
Keith
