H. Q.

To H.M.S. ” Nith,” a Frigate, fell the distinction of being selected as a Headquarters ship for D-Day operations.

During one specially fierce bombing attack the ship was hit and
nine men were killed.

Repairs were effected at Cowes and ” Nith ” then went to the Far East, where she was prominent in the operation which led up to the
capture of Rangoon. Here again she had the position of honour as the
H.Q. ship of Captain M. J. Murphy, R.N., N.O.I.C., Rangoon.
