Kent Sub-Class, County Class Heavy Cruiser HMS Berwick pictured off Scapa Flow on October 28th 1941.....On December 25th 1940, Berwick engaged the German Heavy Cruiser Admiral Hipper off the Canaries when she formed part of the escort to convoy WS-5A, a troop convoy to the Middle East. Despite being thoroughly ready for combat Berwick got the worst of the encounter. She scored no hits on Admiral Hipper, and sustained a fair amount of damage, being hit by several 8-inch (which for the most part passed right through the ship) and 4.1-inch shells. The action did however, drive off Admiral Hipper, and saved the convoy from any losses. Four of her complement were killed and she had to return to Britain for repairs, which lasted until June 1941. On June 15th 1948 she arrived at Shipbreakers Hughes Bolckow, Blyth, for breaking up.
