From The Times, 8 April 1941

An official inquiry has been opened by the naval authorities into the loss of the Admiralty mooring vessel Buffalo which fouled a mine, blew up, and sank while proceeding to salvage an aircraft on Friday, says Reuters.
An official list issued yesterday states that eight of the British personnel of the naval base, including Commander R.R. Airey, R.N., and Lieutenant-Commander M. Beach-Thomas, R.N., as well as 12 Asiatic members of the crew, are missing and presumed to be dead. Two others died of injuries and 20 others, including a British signalman, have been injured and taken to hospital.
