GONE HOME

Lest we forget

H.M.S. Rawalpindi was a British armed merchant cruiser, (a converted passenger ship employed as convoy escorts, as patrol vessels, and to enforce a blockade) that was sunk in a surface action against the German battleships Scharnhorst and Gneisenau during the first months of the Second World War.

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