Naval History On This Day, Any Nation


Recommended Posts

October 14, 1942. The German hilfskreuzer (auxiliary cruiser, disguised armed raider) Komet was sunk off Cap de la Hague in the early hours. Komet was attempting to break out into the Atlantic and was ambushed by British, Polish and Norwegian Hunt class destroyers and British and Dutch MTBs. 

The wreck was found in 2006.

Sir Samuel Hood, 1st Baronet

Amongst other measures Hood took one may mention the garrisoning , which he commissioned as a sloop-of-war to blockade the approaches of Martinique.


My respect, colleagues!

In a russian book of the 19th century I found an interesting drawing of HMS "Diamond Rock"
