As Tirpitz put it later: I was then No. 3 at the muzzle-loading gun, and it was my duty to put in the cannon balls; by my side lay my pike, ready to hand in case the enemy should grapple and put through the porthole. 20 Fog descended during the night.

With the addition of Hamburg and other Hanseatic cities, the Confederation possessed the world’s third-largest merchant marine. 1 In Berlin the team of Roon as Naval (and Army) Minister, Prinz Adalbert as Commanding Admiral, and Jachmann as Operational Commander in October 1867 got the new Reichstag to approve a ten-year program for sixteen armored ships, twenty unarmored corvettes, and eight avisos (dispatch boats), all steam-powered. 2 The navy’s expansion meant a shift from long-term volunteer sailors to three-year conscripts.
In letters home between August 1868 and April 1870, Tirpitz mentioned several respectable young ladies. There is no extant evidence about whether Tirpitz had a sex life at the time. If he did it would likely have been among lower-class women in Kiel. Not surprisingly sexual license was apparently common at the Naval School. In 1866 Director Leibe informed Berlin that 25 percent of that year’s cadets had been diagnosed with syphilis. 57 There is no indication that Tirpitz ever had syphilis, but that does not necessarily mean that he was not sowing wild oats along with his fellow sailors.
