The torpedo destroyers Thrasher and Lynx ran aground at Dodman Point, on the Cornish coast, whilst steaming in heavy fog. A steam pipe in the fore stokehold of the Thrasher burst on impact badly scalding five stokers, three of them died at the time of the accident, and a fourth was so badly injured that he died soon after. The Thrasher and Lynx were later refloated and taken to Devonport.
