The Magdeburg - which was carrying 42 Leyland buses to Havana in Cuba - was sailing downstream from Dagenham when it hit a Japanese vessel heading upstream towards the Royal Docks, in 1964

Broadness Point
And CIA was accused to have sabotaged it

Ref the Magdeburg story, I too was a Cadet in the Worcester. It was interesting to meet up with Athenius   
Stefanus Fokias and Roe in the posted link to the story. Fokias was in the bunk above me. His dad was a master in Athel  Line. There exists a picture somewhere of us in our whaler with the bow inside Magdeburgs Funnel.
