In Paul Carell's book "The Foxes of the desert" there's a undated report of an Allied ship washing ashore near Bardia where it was found by members of the German 33rd Reconnaissance Unit. Apparently abandoned after her bow was blown off. Can't find anything by that name who's loss matches the area.
