HMS Liverpool C11

During World War II, Liverpool earned four battle honors and sustained significant damage in two attacks by Italian torpedo bombers. Serving in various naval stations, Liverpool was involved in diplomatic incidents and major battles, such as the Espero Convoy and Calabria. She also participated in Arctic Convoys and the Malta Convoys’ Operation Harpoon. In 1942, Liverpool was heavily damaged during Operation Harpoon and underwent repairs in Scotland for the rest of the war. After returning to service in 1945, Liverpool served in the Mediterranean Fleet, supporting operations in the Suez Canal Zone.

Liverpool was deployed to the East Indies Station then moved to the China Station and became involved in a diplomatic incident with Japan. Liverpool then served in the Red Sea Force before transferring to the Mediterranean. During her service, she engaged Italian forces and escorted convoys, sustaining damage from torpedo attacks in 1940 and 1942. After undergoing repairs in the United States, Liverpool returned to service and participated in Arctic convoys before being damaged again in 1942 during Operation Harpoon.  

She was eventually repaired and continued to serve until her decommissioning in 1952. Liverpool’s role became obsolete with the Royal Navy’s modernization efforts, leading to her eventual scrapping in 1958.
