– HMS Glowworm And HMS Jervis Bay –

by Ciamar Price

A short introduction to two stories of navy heroism in World War Two. At the start of the war, HMS Glowworm took on the much larger German Battleship Admiral Hipper. HMS Jervis Bay, a converted liner, was the convoy escort for convoy HX84, which was ambushed by the Pocket Battleship Admiral Scheer. Both actions were awarded the Victoria Cross for extreme valour.

I find them fascinating but many books can be very dry, so I try to focus on the story, the people and the challenges. These are written as introductions. Entire books could be (and have been) written on these topics, so if one of my essays piques your interest, there are many more resources out there to tell the whole story with far more detail."
