After a fast sea chase off the Anzio beach-head at midnight on Mar 24th 1944, the British destroyer, H.M.S. Grenville rammed and sank a German E-boat which she had previously crippled by gunfire. Back in port gunners, who helped to stop the E-boat before it was rammed, busy themselves fusing shells for the Grenville's guns in readiness perhaps for another victory of the same kind. H.M.S. Grenville replaced a destroyer of the same name which was sunk in the North Sea on Jan. 20th 1940.
