In March 1915, members of the Millions Club in Sydney formed a Cocos Island Syndicate and organised an expedition to make a film about the defeat of the Emden during the Battle of Cocos. Cinematographer Charles Cusden sailed to the island on the SS Hanley and shot about 1,000 feet (300 m) of film in and around the battered ship, which had been beached on North Keeling Island.[6][7][8]

Cusden returned to Sydney on 26 May 1915.[9]


The film debuted at the Strand cinema in Sydney in June 1915. Relics of the Emden had been brought back and were displayed at the cinema.[1] This run was well received.[10]

The film screened throughout Australia as Fate of the Emden.[11]

The film screened on a program of war pictures in Adelaide in 1916 as How We Fought the Emden.[12]

Footage from the movie was later incorporated into the films How We Beat the Emden (1915) and For the Honour of Australia (1916).[13]
