Germany – Postcard – Felix Funke – Autographed – Admiral Imperial Germany

Admiral Felix Funke (1865-1932) was an Admiral of Imperial Germany both prior to and during WW I. In 1902 he was posted to Tsing Tao where he was an observer if the Russo-Japanese War (U.S. President Teddy Roosevelt was involved in discussions in the U.S. to end the war and would receive the Nobel Peace Prize for his role.) During the war he would command the II. Battleship Squadron. In 1915 he was forced into retirement by Kaiser Wilhelm II with whom e had previously had a warm relationship. This may hav been in part his diasagreement with Prinz Heinrich over unrestricted submarine warfare.

This postcard shows Funke in uniform with a neck order and a large ribbon bar.

His signature in bold black ink is in the lower right corner.
