HMS Stoke

Post by Jordi Comas » Sun Dec 22, 2019 11:14 am

Hi all,

British minesweeper Stoke was bombed and sunk at Tobruk by German Ju-87 aircraft 7/5/41, 21 killed.
Any more details like time, number of airplanes that attacked the ship or anything else?

Thank you very much
Jordi

Stoke had arrived at Tobruk having escorted some ships from Alexandria. She was attacked from 16.00 by Ju.87s and was hit by two bombs, one hit amidships and a second went through the upper deck to explode in the flat below. Several other bombs burst around her. Nine men were killed.

I do not have any info on the number of aircraft involved.
