October 14, 1915 [LAH]: “San Diego, Oct. 14. — Smashed and riddled with 22 gaping holes, the mimic battleship Blucher sank three miles south of San Clemente Island yesterday after a terrific bombardment by the United States cruiser San Diego, in stirring action devised by a motion picture concern. The old whaler Bowhead acted the part of the naval victim.”
