Leading Seaman Magennis served as Diver in His Majesty's Submarine XE3 for her attack on 31st July, 1945, on a Japanese cruiser of the Atago class. Owing to the tact that XE3 was tightly jammed under the target the diver's hatch could not be fully opened, and Magennis had to squeeze himself through the narrow space available.
