The front of the ship was demolished and the remains quickly sunk to the bottom of the ocean. 260 men lost their lives in the explosion itself, with at least six more dying afterwards from related injuries.

Old English Bucc(a) is found as a personal name, as is Old Norse Bukkr. Names such as Walter le Buk (Somerset 1243 ) are clearly nicknames.2 English: topographic name for someone who lived near a prominent beech tree, such as Peter atte Buk (Suffolk 1327 ), from Middle English buk ‘beech’ (from Old English bōc).3 German: from a personal name, a short form of Burckhard ( see Burkhart ).
