Apr 23   In the year 1947 hMS Warspite, to many this was the Royal Navy's most famous battleship. Her survival from her launch on 26th November 1913 to her loss on this date en-route to the breakers has to be at the very least a tribute to her builders for constructing a virtually indestructable ship. She formed part of the 5th Battle Squadron during the First World War. During the Second World War 1939-1946 she took part in the 2nd Battle of Narvik, and the Battle of Calabria in 1940, the battle of Matapan in 1941. This was followed by the bombardment of Normandy where she was damaged by a mine. Previously, in 1943 she was badly damaged by a glider bomb off Salerno. And all this in addition to countless other operations throughout the War. In 1946 she was sold for breaking up on the Clyde but en-route the tow parted and she went ashore in Prussia Cove, Cornwall. She was eventually broken up where she lay.  Click To Send On WhatsappCopy This To Clipboard
