Almost The First Round From The Glasgow Landed in the Stern of the Dresden.

Almost The First Round From The Glasgow Landed in the Stern of the Dresden.

The Dresden also lacked coal and put into a Chilean port. Here the Governor of the island that she must leave within twenty-four hours, but her captain refused to do so, and remained in defiance of Chilian neutrality told her. When the British ships arrived on the scene, the Glasgow leading, they found the Dresden lying within the territorial waters of a neutral Power and in open defiance of the wishes of that Power. The Glasgow at onece opened fire with her 6-inch guns, and almost the first round landed in the stern of the Dresden and set her ablaze. The Germans replied, and then the Kent came into action, but after the first salvo from her powerful broadside the Germans hoisted a white flag and sent out a steam launch, representing to the British commander that he was outraging international law by attacking the Dresden in neutral waters, but as the Dresden had been violating Chilean neutrality for nearly a week, Captain Luce informed the German commander that he intended to sink the Dresden unless the Germans sank her themselves.
