The Duke of Edinburgh has unveiled a new memorial at the Historic Dockyard Chatham to the 11,000 men who died while serving on Royal Navy destroyers in the Second World War.
Among those who died was Captain Bernard Warbuton-Lee VC. On 10 April 1940, Warburton-Lee led a flotilla of 5 destroyers into a fjord in a heavy snowstorm. His mission was to carry out a surprise attack on a larger force of German ships, stationed near the strategically important Norwegian city of Narvik.
Warburton-Lee was fatally wounded by a shell during the battle and was later awarded the Victoria Cross for his actions that day.
