HMS Echo H23

HMS Echo, an E-class destroyer of the British Royal Navy, served in various theaters during World War II, including the Atlantic, Arctic, and Mediterranean.

During January 1940, Echo was stationed with the 12th Flotilla at Scapa Flow, undertaking minelayer escort and patrol duties. In May, she was assigned to support military operations in Norway. In August, she provided escort for ships of the 1st Minelaying Squadron on multiple operations. On August 28th, she was reassigned to duty with the Free French expedition to Dakar (Operation Menace). Following the abandonment of the operation on September 25th, Echo escorted the damaged battleship Barham to Freetown. Subsequently, she remained there for local convoy defense until rejoining the Flotilla at the end of October.

In 1944, Echo was transferred to Greece and rechristened Navarinon.
