HMS Glowworm under fire

HMS Glowworm under fire. The British destroyer HMS Glowworm (Lieutenant Commander Gerard Broadmead Roope) under the fire of the German heavy cruiser Admiral Hipper on 8 April 1940. This photo was taken shortly before both ships collided. The valiant British ship decided to ram the Hipper in a last ditch effort before she sank. The Germans rescued 38 survivors.
