Each sinking was the scene of a fierce struggle on the surface with many casualties. Her commission was served mainly in the Eastern Mediterranean, with a short spell with the Eastern Fleet operating out of Ceylon, during which her ship's company were awarded between them two GC's, one GM, two DSO's, four DSC's, six DCM's and several Mentions in Dispatches. (B)esides those actions in which she was engaged, the author (gunnery control officer in 'Petard') describes her working up, her periods of relaxation, and the men who served aboard her. The result is a unique record of what it was like to be in a destroyer on active service at the most critical period in British naval history." Minor bump at bottom of rear hinge. Dust jacket has minor wrinkle at bottom of rear hinge, two faint line indentations on rear panel, light wrinkling at top edge of rear flap.
