The old D118 HMS Battleaxe

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Anyone connected with the old Battleaxe ( D118 ) I came across this picture, when she was in company with the Victorious. D118 Planequard.jpg
     
  2. Compact and bijou Destroyers and a sort of trial run for the original Darings. My old sea cadet unit was TS Scorpion so I took a bit of an interest in them.
     
  3. I think she was one of our escorts, 1961 or thereabouts, and was scrapped a couple of years later. Of course the D118 was given to HMS Coventry of the Falklands fame.
