|Physical description||Enamel, German silver|
First World War, 1914-1918
Men's ring made from German silver displaying an Iron Cross on a black enamel background. There are some faint markings on either side of the Iron Cross though they have been considerably worn down.
Collected in Singapore in 1916 by Miss Alexandra Anderson Scott from a visiting Royal Navy sailor. It is thought that the ring originally belonged to a German survivor from the SMS Emden, sunk by HMAS Sydney on 9 November 1914.
