Welcome to hmsglowworm.org.uk

On 8th April 1940 The British destroyer HMS Glowworm, alone and outgunned took on the German Heavy Cruiser Admiral Von Hipper and her destroyer escorts. In spite of the heavy odds against her she managed to score hits on her mighty opponent and in a last act of defiance she rammed the Cruiser before she sank.

This website is dedicated to the men of the Glowworm who fought and died for freedom in those dark days. My great Uncle who was killed in the action was one of them.
