I do not have any detail of her loss, only that she was sunk by air attack, with only one survivor. The following are listed as the casualties:

Lieut. Commander Ritchie William HAWES
Sub.Lieutenant Frederick William HILL
Second Hand Roderick RALPH
Seaman Albert Edward SWANSBURY
Seaman John DAVIDSON
Seaman George Capsley HANNAH
Seaman Hector Bruce MacCALLUM (buried at Vlissingen)
Seaman Alan Frank POTTER
Chief Engineer Thomas George ANDREWS
Engineman Frank Belcher PARK
Stoker Arthur Sidney WOOLF
Stoker William MITCHELL
Cook Arther Edward PEPPIT
Steward Raymond CLARKE


The original list of casualties also included: Seaman R. C. ANDERSON as missing, but his name does not appear on the register of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, so he may well have been the one survivor.
