HMS Walker D27

Walker, a British destroyer, served in various campaigns and operations from 1919 to World War II and beyond. Initially involved in Baltic Sea actions against Bolshevik forces, she later served in convoy defense and patrol duties during World War II.  

In September 1939, she collided with another destroyer, resulting in casualties and damage. During the Norwegian Campaign, Walker escorted convoys and faced German air attacks. She later participated in the defense of convoys, including rescuing survivors and engaging German U-boats.

In 1943, she underwent conversion into a long-range escort and resumed convoy defense duties. Assigned to Arctic convoys, she successfully escorted ships to and from the Soviet Union despite German attacks. During Operation Neptune, the Normandy invasion, she escorted troop convoys and continued escort work in the North Atlantic. In 1945, she returned to convoy duty and antisubmarine operations until the end of the war. Walker’s service spanned crucial naval operations of World War II, showcasing her resilience and contributions to Allied efforts.
