PHOTO 027. The Sinking of Destroyer Mashona.

Sinking destroyer Mashona

The Sinking of Destroyer Mashona. Following the sinking of the Bismarck, German aircraft operating from bases in the occupied France were sent to look for Admiral Tovey's force that had run low on fuel and was on its way back home. On 28 May, the destroyers Tartar and Mashona were attacked by German bombers. Mashona was hit by a bomb on her port side and sank with the loss of 46 men. The Tartar rescued about 170 men, including Mashona's commander William H. Selby.
