TCZEW: according to Schmelzkopf, she had one cylindrical one-ended boiler, one triple expansion engine, 600 ihp. As DIRSCHAU, captured in Sept. 1939 at Gdynia while under repair, and renamed in 1940, she was released in 1942 to merchant duties for the "Weichsel" Danziger Dampfschiffahrts- und Seebad AG, Danzig.
Sunk 2.12.1944 off Bruesterort during a trip Danzig to Riga, probably on a mine laid a short time before by the Soviet submarine LEMBIT.
