...at 08:05, Audacious ran upon a mine laid by the German auxiliary minelayer Berlin.

...In the meantime, at 13:08 a message had arrived from the coastguard station at Mulroy that the steamer Manchester Commerce had been mined in the same area the day before. At 16:60, Malin Head reported that the sailing vessel Cardiff had also been mined the previous night.

Good job "Berlin," Not such a good job getting out the word of a known mined area.
