I remember watching something about this on TV once, there was no proof or evidence it actually happened apparently, only here say, but they did find bodies of German sailors washed up, probably from a sunken ship out at sea.

Nothing to do with bodies of German sailors, it was a battle with the crew of a downed Junkers 88, well documented:
