Apparently none, i have now changed it on uboat.net.
It appears that all destroyers remained with the battlefleet.
Liverpool and Gloucester were on their own during their sweep of Tobruk, i have now found their action reports in ADM 199/445.
There is also no mention on destroyers being with the cruisers in all of the cruisers logbooks which i now have available.
Unfortunately the logs for most capital ships of the Mediterranean Fleet for the period of mid 1940 are not available, perhaps these were lost while en-route from the station to the U.K. So i have no logs for the capital ships involved during these operations, Warspite, Malaya and Eagle.
Logbooks for ships smaller then cruisers are not available either after the early months of 1940. They all have been destroyed after the war someone told me.
