 Destroyer   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-12)
Destroyers were involved in the skirmishes that prompted the Battle of Heligoland Bight, and filled a range of roles in the Battle of Gallipoli, acting as troops transports and fire support vessels, as well as their fleet-screening role.
By this time the destroyers had become large multi-purpose vessels, expensive targets in their own right rather than expendable vessels for the protection of others, also they were one of the most sunk kinds of ships even though they were mass produced.
The destroyers (as well as frigates) are, as always, the workhorses of the fleet, the former optimised for air defence and the latter for surface and subsurface warfare.

The Tribal class, or Afridi class, were a class of destroyers built for the Royal Navy, Royal Canadian Navy and Royal Australian Navy that saw service in World War II.

 Williams: Mercy
Sympathetic to all concerns to safeguard habitats or ecosystems and endangered species for their own sake without utilitarian cost-benefit calculations, one may hope that a comparably disinterested and at the same time non-elitist appeal to the attribute of mercy, potential or practiced, can also commend itself to persons in all walks of life and conditions.
In contrast, in feudal society the class distances were such that a higher-class person could express condescending Erbarmen for a human being in a class beneath, no doubt much less frequently toward animals.
The significance of an inquiry into the accumulation of biological and especially socio-psychological, philological, and religious evidence of the concept and attribute of mercy is that it developed gradually to the point where the word itself has been largely displaced in modern vocabularies.

Full technical details, with much new information and insight; many plans and photographs Since the Second World War the old categories of destroyer and frigate have tended to merge, a process that this book traces back to the radically different 'Tribal' class destroyers of 1936.
It deals with the development of all the modern destroyer classes that fought the war, looks at the emergency programmes that produced vast numbers of trade protection vessels - sloops, corvettes and frigates - then analyses the pressures that shaped the post-war fleet, and continued to dominate design down to recent years.
Not content to merely describe the many classes in full technical detail, he uses previously unpublished material from his research in many archives to draw a new and convincing picture of British naval policy over the previous half-century and more.
