Men of the sea call it Bloody Foreland, and with good reason. Withing the space of ten minutes on the afternoon of 2 October 1942, 338 officers and men of the Royal Navy - my shipmates - died 100-mile off this rocky shoreline. Not as a result of enemy action, but because of an appalling accident. An accident which has gone down in the Naval annals as one of the most terrible tragedies of WW II.
