This book is a unique account of a town class destroyer and the East Yorkshire town she was named after.

When, in 1940, the Royal Navy accepted fifty aging American warships, the mayor of Beverley wrote to the Admiralty requesting him to name one of the ships after the town. The Admiralty agreed, and from that day on the people of Beverley adopted the shop and took a considerable interest in her exploits.

This book connects the activities of the ship at sea with life in the East Yorkshire market town during the dark days of the Second World War…..
