thanks to Mr. "Chalky" White for telling me a little of the history
shown in these photos.
She was damaged in action off El Daba, Libya, by an Italian
1 man torpedo boat on the 29th.August 1942. and 6 of her company were lost.
is seen here being towed into "Alexandria" by her sister ship "HMS
Aldenham" after a 15 hour journey,
under sustained air attack for most of that
The ship in the background was an "Interned French Battleship",
the "Lorraine", and some of her crew were heard "Jeering" as the damaged ship,
with her dead and wounded aboard, passed by.
now we have a "United Europe" ?? - I don't think so !!.
