On 27 May 1941, HMS Registan (A/Cdr. Eric Arthur Divers, RNR) was bombed by German aircraft off Cape Cornwall. The ship caught fire and 63 crew members were lost. The survivors were rescued by HMS Wivern (Cdr. M.D.C. Meyrick, RN), HMS Vansittart (Lt.Cdr. R.L.S. Gaisford, RN) and HMS Wild Swan (Lt.Cdr. C.E.L. Sclater, RN) and landed at Milford Haven. The badly damaged ship was towed to Falmouth by the British tug Goliath, where she was rebuilt to a merchant and was returned to the owner in November 1941.
