The plan drawings for Schleswig-Holstein depict what appears to be a pneumatic tube system ("rohrpostanlage") to deliver messages from a compartment near the bridge (wireless office?) to a compartment well aft. Hand-drawn alterations suggest that it was being considered to allow delivery to/from the forward station to be altered by a switch to direct payloads to a compartment below the forward superstructure.
