The loss of the Hood would be the most frequently quoted example from WWII, although again ammunition handling practices may have been the issue. There isn’t much realevidence one way or the other since the wreck is a long way down, only theories, but it’s summarised fairly well on Wiki, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Hood
