Danish steamer Prinsesse Marie - sunk by Russian auxiliary cruiser Terek in 1905

This is the Danish East Asiatic Company's (Danish: Det Østasiatiske Kompagni ) steamer Prinsesse Marie, which in 1905 was sunk in the China Sea by the Russian Imperial Navy's auxiliary cruiser Terek on June 22 1905. The Russians wrongly believed that Prinsesse Marie was carrying contraband to the Japanese.
