The details

Matrose Hermann Künne (12 December 1897 - 23 April 1918) was a German sailor killed during World War I. He was based at Zeebrugge as a crewman on the Torpedo boat S53 and died fighting British soldiers during the Zeebrugge Raid. He killed a senior British officer - probably Wing Commander Frank Arthur Brock - in hand-to-hand combat with a cutlass. He is buried in Zeebrugge. The World War II German destroyer Z19 was named Hermann Künne in his honour.
