Jones noticed that the ship's main mast had been damaged and the white ensign was no longer flying. The Shark was now a scene of destruction, smashed up, laying low in the water and beyond salvation. Jones gave the order to abandon ship, crying "Save yourselves! Jones was put in a lifebelt and helped into the water, while the remaining crew clung to rafts and wreckage.

    At around 7pm, HMS Shark suffered its final torpedo attack and sank beneath the waves.

    Margaret Jones interviewed members of the Shark 's crew that were with her husband as he worked to defend his ship. She then used their testimonies to write a report, which was sent to the Admiralty.
