From the cover: “The C class destroyers were among the Royal Navy’s most important warships after 1945. Available in significant numbers, they participated in many of the post-war RN operations from Confrontation to Beira; Cod Wars to Suez; Palestine to the Cold War. The list of their activities is an illustration of the RNs achievements in the period. One of the type, HMS Cavalier, survives today at The Historic Dockyard, Chatham, as a memorial to the 143 British destroyers and over 11,000 men lost at sea during the Second World War. This volume details the individual histories of each of the 32 destroyers.”
