Edit...I changed my mind USS St Louis CL-49
Yes Jeff, USS St Louis
After the Battle of Kolombangara
This ship was laid down in one country under one name, sold to another country, where she was renamed twice before being renamed again by another country.
Can you give me two of the four names?
Let's not forget USS Pitsburg but in her case it was not enemy action
She looks italian, so my guess would be Insidioso / Wilfang / TA21 or Kawakaze / Audace / Intrepido / TA 20 most likely the second.
Had to be one of the two. Note the director arrangement above the bridge.
Kawakaze, Intrepido, Audace then TA-20.
Laid down by Japanese as Kawakaze, remaned Intrepido by Italians in 1916, then later Audace. Captured by the Germans in 1943, it was renamed TA-20. It was sunk by the British 1 Nov 1944.
Continuing the current trend of ships that served in multiple navies this one did full circle.

Suddnly the "dreaded red X" has disappeared.....
She originally had 10 sisters ......
How about Niobe, or Dalmacija, or Cattaro, or Zniam, or whatever you want to call her?
I'd say you are right on that one Tiornu
Niobe was the name she was launched with and as Niobe she was sunk so let's call her Niobe.
Over to you.
Who's quickest on the trigger?
Think you were ... did't notice I was quoting TA's post not yours.
The Greek cruiser "Georgios Averof" before her 1928 update....
That is she.
Next one will be trickier, we return my mother's album again.
The setting is Narvik, April 1940.
So far we have seen floating vessels, topside up.
This one is upside down.
Pictures are taken in north direction.
Well, this time it is a warship, likely a destroyer or something about that size. Note the size of the twin props compared to the hull. A merchant of the period would be single screw and much larger than the prop.
Hint: From the nation with the White Ensign, ran aground on the southern side of the fjord.
I was also thinking of a warship but those two huge propellers did not have a german look and had always believed the British losses sank completely.
HMS Hardy is is the most likely as HMS Hunter took a torpedo and I see no sign of torpedo damage.
