Zhemchug Wreck Marker

At the start of World War I, Zhemchug was part of the Allied (British-French-Japanese) joint task force pursuing the German East Asia Squadron under Admiral Maximilian von Spee, and operated in the Bay of Bengal together with the Imperial Japanese Navy cruiser Chikuma. On 28 October 1914, she was moored at Penang, when attacked by the German light cruiser Emden in what was later called the Battle of Penang.
