Some of the weapons and artefacts recovered from the wreck of HMS Natal, which exploded in December 1915 in the Cromarty Firth with the loss of 400 people. The explosion occurred while a party was taking place and the ship keeled over and sank in minutes. Rumour suggestged sabotage but faulty cordite was held to be the cause.
