In this talk Scot Lindgren will be looking at the sinking of HMS Natal in the Cromarty Firth on the afternoon of 30 December 1915, which claimed about 400 lives, including some naval nurses and civilian women and children visiting the ship while at anchor off Invergordon. An enquiry put the sinking down to a spontaneous cordite explosion, but several other theories were spoken of at the time and later.
