GONE HOME

Lest we forget

H.M.S. Glorious was the second of the three Courageous-class battlecruisers built for the Royal Navy during the First World War. Glorious was paid off after the war, but was rebuilt as an aircraft carrier during the late 1920s. She sent in April 1940 to support operations in Norway. While evacuating British aircraft from Norway in June, the ship was sunk by the German battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau in the North Sea with the loss of over 1,200 lives.

We know the names of some former Scouts and Leaders who were lost with the ship.
