    Raided England on 31 January 1916, dropping a total of 1,600 kg (3,500 lb) of bombs. On 2 February 1916 after a raid on England with three engines failing, it came under Dutch fire and sank in the North Sea, drowning all crew members as nearby English fishing trawler "King Stephen" refused any help to them. In the last hours Kapitan-Leutnant Loewe and his crew dropped into the sea their last messages, which washed up six months later in Sweden. On 23 April 1916 Torpedo boat G41 attacked and sank the King Stephen, taking its crew prisoner.
