A Quiz!

Anyone know what Derfflinger's unofficial nickname was in the Imperial Navy? Ran across it by accident!

Wrong Waleed! The question was to truly identify this submarine. I believe the correct answer to the question, as posed, would have been DEUTSCHLAND. Hate to quibble, but it's the only way I know of to trip you up!!!! :wink:

But, seeing as how you're a friend of mine, I'll give you another chance--can you identify this ship and its commander:

Heh Heh! I love being EviL! :D :D :D :up:

:? Better get the next one right then... Wouldn't want you to quibble!

Hilfskreuzer SMS Wolf, formerly the Hansa freighter Wachtfels (wrongly named Wolf II, as it was the fourth ship named Wolf :wink: )
Commander being Fregattenkapitän Karl August Nerger and not Neger as some sites claim.

Here's an easy one for you: Who are they!

Full names, ranks and occupation please... No quibbling! :D
A hint: Something smaller than SMS Wolf.

And to complete the quiz subject... Karl August Nerger, who recieved the Pour-le-Merité on 24.02.1918 as a Fregattenkapitän z. See and Kdt. of the Hilfskreuzer "Wolf". And a really great studio photograph of Nerger...
