British Destroyers, accompanied by the light cruiser Amphion, under the command of Captain C. H. Fox chasing the German mine laying ship Konigin Luise.
Within a few hours of the outbreak of war a division of British destroyers, accompanied by the light cruiser Amphion, under the command of Captain C. H. Fox, slipped out from Harwich to begin searchlight the lower end of the North Sea. On falling in with a trawler they were told by the skipper that a suspicious looking vessel had been seen throwing things overboard. Steaming on at full speed, the four leading destroyers very soon sighted what appeared to be a Great Eastern Railway steamer making towards the Dutch coast. As they rushed forward, the steamer began to put on speed, and she was soon running for all she was worth. A warning shot was fired, summoning her to stop. But as she failed to do so, the 31-pounders of the destroyers opened fire.
