Opis: The Amazing Cruise of the German Raider "Wolf;" (Classic Reprint) - Donaldson A.

Excerpt from The Amazing Cruise of the German Raider "Wolf;"
Nothing that occurred during the Great War so closely touched Australia as the operations of the Germain raider "Wolf." Though there were, during the progress of the war, particularly in the earlier stages, many rumours and alarms of enemy invasion, while many estimable citizens were able to furnish the straight tip about visitations of enemy squadrons, of battles, of the sinking of transports and capture of merchantmen, of the detection of alien enemy subjects using wireless plants in many inaccessible places, and there were those who actually saw enemy aeroplanes, yet we have no authoritive information of enemy activities in our home seas other than those of the cruiser "Emden," the "See Adler," and the "Wolf." Of the two former enemy vessels little need be said here, full accounts having appeared in many sources of public information, and indeed, so far as affecting Australia was concerned, their activities were short-lived.
The "Wolf," however, did disturb the peace of our home seas. Besides taking a considerable toll of our shipping by direct capture, evidenced by the cases of the "Matunga," "Wairuna," "Winslow," and other well-known boats, she laid several nests of "eggs" (mines) around the coast of Australia and New Zealand, some of which hatched and took a further toll of our local traders. Of these, the mishap of the steamer Cumberland is extremely interesting. This boat was one of the Federal Houlder Shire's latest liners of nearly 9000 tons, with a dead weight capacity of 15,000 tons, her length being 474ft., breadth 60ft., by depth 36ft., and she was powerfully equipped for cargo handling, carrying four steam turbines geared to two shafts.
