EDITORS COMMENTS
HMS Wishart (A002466) graces the waters of Hays Wharf in Bermondsey, London, in this photograph taken by W Rawlings in April 1937. The Thorneycroft modified W-class destroyer, launched in 1919, is bedecked in celebratory bunting, a testament to the national pride and anticipation that surrounded the naval fleet at the time. During the tumultuous years of the Second World War, HMS Wishart served valiantly in the Mediterranean fleet. Her duties included acting as an escort to the vital Malta convoys, a critical mission that ensured the survival of the besieged island and its people. The ship's history is steeped in maritime and naval tradition. Launched just after the end of the First World War, she was a symbol of the resilience and determination of the British naval forces. Her service in the Mediterranean during the Second World War further solidified her place in the annals of military history. The photograph was taken on a significant day for the National Maritime Museum, as HMS Wishart served as the Guardship at Greenwich for the museum's opening by King George VI on 27th April 1937. This image captures a moment in time, a moment when the pride and strength of the British naval fleet were on full display, a testament to the enduring legacy of the Royal Navy.
