Meat, wool & lead
Nice research! Now there's a mix, if you had a really, really rough sea I wonder which would come out on top? Err, I won't say the lead.
Shame it went to the bottom and couldn't be taken as a prize, I'm sure Nazi Germany would've enjoying consuming all three.
DKM Graf Spee, marauding the South Atlantic sinks the 7,983 ton steamer Tairoa, carrying a cargo of meat, wool & lead from Melbourne to Freetown. Ever the respectful the wartime captain, Hans Langsdorff takes the entire ship's company aboard, without a single loss of life as he'd done since the start of hostilities.
