HMS Cavalier is a ‘C’-Class destroyer, one of 96 War Emergency Programme destroyers that were ordered between 1940 and 1942. She saw action on convoy duty off Russia, and later, in 1945, was sent to the Far East where she provided naval gunfire support during the battle of Surabaya. She continued with the British Pacific Fleet until May 1946. Now designated as a war memorial to the 142 Royal Navy destroyers and 11,000 men lost during World War II, she is on display at Chatham Historic Dockyard. Containing more than 200 commissioned photographs, this book takes the reader on an illustrated tour of the ship, from bow to stern. Significant parts of the vessel are given detailed coverage so the reader has the most complete visual record of the ship that exists. No other book offers such superb visual impact nor brings the ship so vividly to life.
