Racey Carl22/01/2011On 11 November 1940, the RAVNANGER was on passage from the Tees for Sydney in ballast, with a crew of thirty-seven and three passengers, when she was bombed and sunk by German aircraft. Twenty-six of her crew and one passenger died in the attack. Although the wreck here is believed to be the RAVNANGER, it is in the same position where the large steamship BENEFICENT sank in 1917.
