The German light cruiser, SMS (KMS) Emden, leaving Wilhelmshaven, Germany, November 14,1926 on a worldwide training cruise. She is the third German warship to carry the name, "Emden." The ship's company, including many naval cadets, pose before departure. Some members pose on the dock, others her deck, and some are seen aloft on her upper structures. View of the ship's bow with Imperial shield visible above the anchor and a German cross affixed to her prow. The pier is crowded with family, friends, and interested spectators. After the official photographs have been taken, the ship's company prepare for their journey. Views from a high point nearby of the Emden in what is probably the Reichsmarinewerft naval shipyard. Cranes ships, docks, and other shipyard equipment and activities are seen in the background. The scene shifts to the ship ready to depart, with everyone at duty stations aboard. Smoke rises from the Emden's stacks as she leaves the pier and proceeds seaward on a world cruise, from which she will not return until March 1928.
