HMS Campbell l60

HMS Campbell, an Admiralty type flotilla leader of the British Royal Navy, was built by Cammell Laird, Douglas, commissioned in December 1918. Throughout WWII, it mainly served as a convoy escort along the East Coast of the UK.

Campbell was part of five Admiralty type flotilla leaders ordered in April 1917. It had a length of 320 feet, a beam of 31 feet 9 inches, and a displacement of 1,580-2,050 tons. Its armament included five 4.7-inch guns, torpedoes, and anti-aircraft guns. Campbell was laid down in November 1917, launched in September 1918, and commissioned in December 1918.

During WWII, modifications included replacing the amidships gun with anti-aircraft weapons, adding radar, and relocating guns for improved effectiveness.

Between the wars, Campbell served in various flotillas and took part in operations such as supporting Baltic states against Bolshevik Russia and evacuating child refugees during the Spanish Civil War. In WWII, it participated in convoy escort duties, engagement with enemy vessels, and played a role in significant operations like the Channel Dash and the Normandy landings. After the war, Campbell was scrapped in 1948.
