Description

The Eskimo, a British destroyer of the Clan class, began construction on August 5, 1936. It was launched on September 3, 1937, and entered service on December 30, 1938. The Eskimo participated in the Second Naval Battle of Narvik in April 1940, and supported the Allied landing in North Africa in November 1942 and served in the Tenth Destroyer Fleet. On June 22, 1944, north of Brest in the British Strait, with the assistance of the Canadian Navy destroyer Haida and a Czech Air Force Liberator bomber, the German Navy U-971 submarine was sunk. In the last days of the war, the Eskimo served in the Far East. For most of the spring of 1945, she was ordered to clear the Japanese army in Burma. Soon the Husky and another tribal-class destroyer joined the fleet to wipe out the remaining Japanese forces on the surface. In 1946, the Husky was sold and demolished on June 27, 1949 after performing a series of missions in the country.
