RHNS AVEROF

£19.99 £3.99

The flagship of the Greek Royal Hellenic Navy, the Averof saw action in the Balkan Wars of 1912 and the Battle of Lemnos in the First World War. Remarkably for such an old lady, she escaped the Germans in 1941, and saw service escorting convoys to the Indian Ocean befotre being decommissioned in 1945. After 40 years of neglect, she has happily now been turned into a floating Naval Museum off Athens. This is her story.
