On 3 June 1905 while on route from Hamburg to San Diego with a general cargo she had moored up in thick fog off of Dungeness, soon afterwords the Channel Fleet of the Royal Navy sailed into the fog and started to slow down, however the Battleship HMS Caesar rammed her causing her to sink almost immediately. Picking up 12 survivors, 18 others being lost the other ships were alerted, however 2 more Battleships collided and a third became entangled with another freighter.
(HMS Caesar suffered significant damage; her bridge wings were carried away and the boats, davits, and net booms on her port side were badly damaged. Caesar was refitted at Devonport to repair the damage).
Today the wreck lies in 40m with some scour to 44m, a general depth of 38-39m broken in 3 parts with the stern standing very proud. She is very nicely placed in a wide area of the separation zone of the shipping lanes on some very nice white sand that improves the light levels considerably.
