Maat [Petty Officer 3rd Class]. Died of wounds on the Admiral Graf Spee during its battle with the British in the Rio Del Plata estuary.
Panzerschiffe (Pocket battleships) The "Pocket battleships" were the Admiral Graf Spee, Admiral Scheer, and Deutschland (later renamed Lützow). Modern commentators favor classifying these as "heavy cruisers" and the Kriegsmarine itself reclassified these ships as such (Schwere Kreuzer) in 1940. In German language usage these three ships were designed and built as "armoured ships" (Panzerschiffe) - "pocket battleship" is an English label.
