Operation Hurry

Post by Jordi Comas » Mon Mar 02, 2020 6:58 pm

Hi all,

I'm trying to find which 10 British destroyers were involved in Operation Hurry 31/7/40 in the Mediterranean.

Sure are the following ones: Greyhound, Gallant, Encounter, Hotspur, Faulknor, Forester..................the other 4 are doubtful although 4 of the following ones took part in the operation.

They are: Foxhound, Foresight, Fearless, Velox, Escapade, Active, Wrestler. Which ones?

Thank you very much
Jordi
