Default 8th/1st Destroyer Flotilla - 1934

In December 1934, the 1st Destroyer Flotilla sailed the Mediterranean for the Far East to relieve the 8th Destroyer Flotilla

The 1st D.F. consisted of HMS Duncan (Capt. D) and the D Class (HMS Daring, HMS Delight etc).

At Singapore they relieved the 8th D.F. HMS Keppel (Capt. D.). The 8th D.F. then became the 1st D.F. and sailed Singapore for the Mediterranean

My question is. What ships were in the 1st D.F. that left Singapore for the Mediterranean

Dave

SOMME On passage to England
STORMCLOUD same
SEPOY same
THRACIAN same

SERAPH Existing in squadron

KEPPEL WISHART WILD SWAN WHITEHALL VERITY all recently joined.

I would love to know the source of these drawings of the ships of the 8 DF on the China Station and add them to the V & W Destroyer Associations website. Could you send me a higher res version of the first image covering 1931 -?

I have began work on a web page about HMS VETERAN on the China Station and have been sent some fine photographs by the grandson of a LS Jepp. But know next to nothing about what the 8 DF were doing during this period.

Please help if you can: http://vandwdestroyerassociation.org...ran/China.html
