The Ice Crossing: Operations After October
The war at sea was on a limited scale after Moon Sound. In mid-October the Germans sent a dreadnought and a cruiser to shell the 12th Army’s coastal flank from the Gulf of Riga, but this was only a demonstration. Admiral Schmidt’s Task Force was disbanded on 21 October and his ships sent to the North Sea. The Russians for their part kept up a few patrols (losing the destroyer Bditel’ny in the process), but by mid-December the Baltic Fleet was frozen into its bases.1 As part of the armistice of 5 December a demarcation line was drawn across the Baltic from Sweden to Vorms Island; on the German side were Ezel’, Dago, Moon, and the western half of the Gulf of Riga.
