* - Flotilla leader
These "H" ships were building for
foreign navies at the outbreak of war, and were taken in hand by
the RN for completion.
"Y" gun ( not until later in the "I" class ) and destroyer sweeps were not included, and so 110 extra DC's were carried aft. The after funnel was shortened, and the rangefinder was built into the DCT.
Survivors had their after tubes replaced by a 12 pound AA gun, and their mainmasts were struck. The MG's were removed, and 4 20mm AA added. "A" gun was replaced with a hedgehog.
Later, 2 extra 20mm cannons were shipped, along with SW type 273 replacing the LA.DCT and more DC's in place of the 12 pounder.
