Dec 30 In the year 1915 cromarty Harbour, Scot-British cruiser Natal explodes: 405 die
Dec 30 HMS Natal, blew up and sank at her moorings in the Cromarty Firth, Scotland, over 400 lives lost. Sources differ about the date with some giving it as 31st. The cause was speculated about at the time and sabotage was feared by some but the official enquiry put it down to a cordite explosion which becomes unstable when overheated. Other ships had suffered a similar fate, and this is the most likely explanation on this day in history.
