U-152 (German Submarine, 1917)
Comes alongside its prize, the Norwegian bark Stifinder, on 13 October 1918. The bark was sunk after being captured in the western mid-Atlantic. She appears to be flying a Spanish flag.
At this time U-152 had two U.S. Navy officers on board as prisoners of war, captured when she sank USS Ticonderoga (ID # 1958) on 30 September 1918. They were Lieutenant Frank L. Muller, USNRF, Ticonderoga's Executive Officer, and Lieutenant (Junior Grade) Junius H. Fulcher, USNRF.
