On the 18th March 1915, she struck a mine,which caused severe damage and killed around 150 of her crew. Without power she began to drift into the range of the Turkish guns. With attempts to tow her having failed, she was abandoned with most of her crew having been successfully evacuated, and eventually sank. William Stevens survived, and was posted to HMS Queen Elizabeth. He later served on HMS Hussar, HMS Osiris, HMS Honeysuckle and HMS Hercules. His Long Service and Good Conduct Medal was issued on the 11th November 1917.
