British auxiliary cruiser [Nalgora?] in problems after stranding according to the Dutch newspaper Haagsche courant dated 3 January 1941

An item reported that a British auxiliary cruiser was grounded off Cape El Espigon caused by the heavy storm in the Strait of Gibraltar. Salvage was if even possible very difficult due to the still worse weather conditions and the large leak in the ship.(1)
