Notes:

1. Latitude/longitude, including for days in port, show representative decimal positions for each day, as calculated by the Old Weather project's analysis program. As such, they differ by varying amounts from the positions recorded, usually at noon, in the log pages. In addition, some latitudes/longitudes have been amended in edited logs for errors in the logs, for errors in identifying locations by the analysis program, or simply for greater accuracy. In all cases, refer to the log-page scans for the positions as originally recorded. Not all log pages contain this information and the ships' positions have therefore often been estimated.

2. Full account of any day is available by clicking on the link above that day. Groups of links refer to log book covers and introductory information; some may be blank.

Note from the editor: From General Paul Emil Von Lettow-Vorbeck’s book: My reminiscences of East Africa (resumed):


At the begining of the war S.M.S. Koenigsberg left Dar es Salaam and on the 29th of September 1914 attacked and sank H.M.S. Pegasus at Zanzibar. The Koenigsberg then went into hiding in the Rufiji River delta. The so-called Delta Detachment under Lieutenant Commander Schoenfeld defended this place. There were about 150 rifles and a few light guns and machine guns. The detachment consisted of Naval ratings, Reservists and Askaris (native troops). As the delta was covered with deep jungle the approach to Koenigberg’s hiding place was difficult. The English discovered the ship by sending aeroplanes. The enemy made several attempts to enter the Delta but was always repelled by our detachment shifting frequently position avoiding thus detection. A small steamer (The Adjutant) that the English had taken as prize was recaptured and subsequently used as a gunboat on the Lake Tanganyika.


The English arrived with shallow boats heavily armed, and on the 6th of July a first attack was made on the Koenigsberg, which was repelled. On the 11th the attack was repeated and she suffered severely: The gun-detachment was put out of action, the severely wounded captain ordered to scuttle the ship. Although her loss was sad, it had its advantages for the campaign: The stores were landed and the crew integrated with the “Schutztruppen” (protective force). All 10 of Koenigberg’s guns were salved and transported by land as follows: 5 to Dar es Salaam, 2 to Tanga, 2 to Kigoma and one to Mansua.
