THE ROYAL NAVY DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR

THE ROYAL NAVY DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR (A 6793) The battlecruiser HMS REPULSE, painted in a dazzle camouflage scheme, while escorting the last troop convoy to reach Singapore. The ship was sunk a few days later with great loss of life on 10 December 1941 by Japanese torpedoes. The sinking, along with that of HMS PRINCE OF WALES, was an appalling blow to British prestige in the Far East. Copyright: � IWM.
