German interior ships and lighters seized by Belgium in 1914

Fayler in the Seaborne Trade history indicates some 50 German vessels were seized.
Does anyone know where a list of said vessels may be found?

Where they sent off to England before the Antwerp waterways were occupied by Germany?

Re: Naval records research in Spain

Hello Marty,

Pardon the expectations aroused in my earlier post, I was initially excited at finding the link and then muted seeing the critical years are missing.

Re: Printed sources for Turkish merchant shipping losses in WW1?

For example Russian source indicates: In November 1914, Admiral Ebergardt led a sweep of the coast sinking several steamers and dozens of sailing ships.
