return to Contents List 
 

E-Class destroyer ordered on 1st November 1932 from Scotts at Greenock under the 1931 Build Programme. The ship was laid down on 30th March 1933 at the same time as her sister ship HMS ESCORT also built in this shipyard. She was launched on 30th January 1934 as the first RN ship to carry this name. Build was completed on 30th August 1934 for a cost of 249,987, excluding the cost of  equipment such as weapons, ammunition and  communications outfits that  were supplied by the Admiralty. She was mainly deployed with the Home Fleet before September 1939, but did spend several periods on detached service in the Mediterranean between 1935 and March 1939. After a successful WARSHIP WEEK campaign for National Savings in March 1942 she was adopted by the civil community of Stretford, Lancashire, now part of Greater Manchester.
