At one point, Hood turned for a second "run" and the deflection got cancelled by "human error". Protector was quickly straddled by 4 15-inch shells. The story goes that Protector's cat emptied its bowels in terror. Admiral Cunningham, who was aboard Hood, was not amused - a Board of Enquiry ensued and the offending officer was censured.
