Biographical Notes:HMS Bulwark was destroyed at Sheerness by a huge explosion, which probably resulted from the mishandling of ammunition. One account says it sank from an internal magazine explosion killing all but 15 of the 700 officers and men. A second report says there were just 12 survivors. http://www.wessexwfa.org.uk/articles/hms-bulwark.htm
