ADVANCED BUILD HMS NAIAD 1940
HMS Naiad was a Royal Navy Dido-class light cruiser in World War Two. She served in the Atlantic and Mediterranean, and by mid-1941 the vessel was defending the Malta convoys, but she also helped to evacuate personnel from Crete and bombarded North Africa. In 1942, she was torpedoed by the German U-565 and sank with the loss of scores of crewmen.
