"Practically everyone knows of HMS Cossack's magnificent exploit in a Norwegian fiord in February 1940 when her crew rescued 299 captive British merchant seamen from the Altmark. Cossack was just one of 27 Tribal Class destroyers which served in the Royal Navy and the Royal Australian and Canadian Navies from 1938 to 1969. They were considered by many to be the finest of their type. The Tribals probably saw more action over a longer period of time, and over a greater area of the globe, than any other class of destroyer. They took part in almost every Home Fleet and Mediterranean action, the D-Day operations, the East Indies, the South-West Pacific amphibious landings, the Battle for Leyte Gulf, the surrender of Japan and the Korean War. Technical details are provided, together with lists of commanding officers and pennant numbers, and the ship's crests." Interior - clean with no previous ownership marks. Exterior - minor corner wear, minor soiling. Very Good+
