On 8 November 1940, she sailed into Bass Strait, off the Victorian coast. All hands were safely evacuated after she struck a mine, either German or Japanese, who knows, we had both the Bs to deal with at the time, mines were everywhere. Unfortunately one crew member returned to the ship to collect personal effects, and drowned when the ship went under.

Photos should be online within 24 hours.
