Can anyone help. Contact me at Paul.Broadbent@thamestv.co.uk 

HMS Tyrian

LEONARD HODGE.. I served on the Tyrian from before commissioning to when she returned to Chatham after VE Day (in Malta)  I left whilst she had a refit to go on a Japanese course.  VJ came just before I completed the course and the Tyrian was already in the Far East. I have been trying to find out what happened to her after I left her until she was scrapped in 1965. She was a lucky ship apart from two bits of damage!  The first was when we left Wallsend to go the Rosyth.  It was the first that the skipper had to bring her into a confined space - the destroyer pens.  We rammed the end of the pen and Scotland would not move so we had a neat shape cut into the bow. The second was a shrapnel hole in our funnel received in the Straits of Messina when we made a night raid to put out of action the ferry/port to prevent the evacuation of the Italian/German forces.  I was below but I was told that when the searchlights pick us up from both shores it was like daylight on the upper deck. Contact me at leonard.hodge@tinyworld.co.uk
