USN Ships--USS William D. Porter (DD-579)
Have we ever had anything happen like this? We may have had some unlucky ships but this is something else...
HMS ULSTER had intercourse with one of the caaisons up around Fountain Lake Jetty, Tiger fired a practice 6" brick around Devonport dockyard, but don't know of anything quite like those unfortunate chain of events. Vanguard didn't want to leave the fleet and blocked Pompey harbour on her way to the scrappie.
