Anchor of "HMS The Crescent"

HMS The Crescent was a British fregate launched in 1784. It wrecked in 1808 at the coast of Maarup on the way to Gothenburg, Sweden.

Even though Denmark and England were at war the crew decided to swim to land than drown. 63 crew members survived. Those who didn't survive (266) were buried at the church under the anchor in a mass grave.
