Hello there,

As a part of the investigation into the ships scuttled post WWII in the Skagerak with gas ammunition aboard, I've been trying to find images of the ships involved.

So far, two ships seems to stump me - I haven't been able to source any images of Emmy Howaldt nor Lotte. Does anyone know about existing images of these two ships?

Edith Howaldt; former names Most, Julius Zelck, Wangard, Ingo, Elsa Menzell, Built 1903, Neptunwerft, Rostock. Bernard Howaldt-Reederei. 2067 grt

Lotte; former names Helene Blumenfeld, Jacob Schröder. Built 1905, Henry Koch, Lübeck. Reederei Reinecke & Bremer, Hamburg, 2116 BRT.

Especially Lotte is an enigma as to whether she was scuttled or transferred to the Soviets. Most sources indicate the first, but there have been ones claming the latter. I'd appreciate any hard input into that mystery as well.
