(m) The national leaders had ordered the "City of Mahon", who was armed and in the port of Las Palmas and under the command of Lieutenant Fernando Balen, an expedition to capture the Fernando Poo. On October 14 at dawn, and after 10 days of travel, City of Mahon arrived in Bata and intimidated the Fernando Poo and invited the occupants to surrender, to which no reply was received. The guns of the City of Mahon opened fire on its fellow ship, causing an hole on the water line, which was followed by a fire. The militia then left the ship. The attacking forces on City of Mahon failed to save the ship, which sank in shallow water lying on her starboard side. This was the first ship lost to Trasmediterr?nea during the civil war. The company tried on several occasions to raise the Fernando Poo, however, the site conditions were difficult to sink and the plan was eventually dismissed.
