Is it the former USN four-stacker destroyer in RN service which was converted into a deceptive configuration to allow her to enter a NAZI-occupied French port and destroy a dry-dock?I can't immediately recall the ship's name or the battle.
I should have thought about it some more...HMS Campbeltown - used in the St. Nazaire Raid.
Oh,BTW - I'm still awaiting to being "dazzled."
Second Oh,I suppose that I should have provided these supporting items:St Nazaire Raidhttp://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/St._Nazaire_RaidHMS Campbeltown (I42)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Campbeltown_(I42)USS Buchanan (DD-131)http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/USS_Buchanan_(DD-131)
Missed my shot at this one. It is a very famous photo. She was disguised to look like a Moewe class torpedo boat (small destroyer)http://wwiiarchives.net/servlet/photo/1838/0
