She had been diverted to the Gibraltar roadstead on 10 June 1940 but managed to slip her anchor and beach herself on the Spanish coast 3 miles from nearby Algeciras. After the September 8 Armistice, the British authorities took her over and put her back into service with an Italian crew recruited among POWs.
P.S. Algeciras is inside the Strait, not outside.
