The Tribal-class destroyer HMS Zulu (F18)1941:
  • The Zulu is a tribal-class British destroyer, built in Glasgow. The keel was built on August 10, 1936, and it was launched on September 23, 1937, and won the title of Lucky Ship. Entered service on September 7, 1938. The Zulu headed to the Mediterranean and was stationed in Malta. In 1941, the Zulu was hit by the German naval battleship, Bismarck. In June, we sailed to Falmouth, England for modification: the rear chimney was removed and the mainmast was replaced; two two-pounder guns were installed on the bridge; radar and other electronic equipment were installed. The refit was completed in July. After Zulu returned to the Mediterranean, as a force against the Italian navy, participated in the attack on the Tobruk fortress. The luck of the Zulu is gone here. On September 14, 1942, the Zulu was attacked and damaged by the Tobruk Coastal Artillery. Only a few hours later, the Zulu was attacked by the Italian Air Force. The bomb exploded in the boiler room and she could no longer move. Most of the crew were rescued, and then the Zulu was towed to Alexandria. However, she was attacked again by the Italian Air Force on the way, and the Zulu suddenly tilted to starboard and sank. Twelve crew members were killed and more than 27 were missing.
