Features ORP 'BŁYSKAWICA' 1943/2012 Camouflage, Naval Destroyer
ORP “Błyskawica” (Lightning) was launched on 1 October 1936 at 11:55, and Mrs C Raczńska (the wife of the Ambassador) was the godmother. The ship was fully equipped by 1 September 1937. On 4 January 1938 command of the ship was taken over by Sub-Commander Włodzimierz Kodrębski, previously commander of ORP “Burza”. During her wartime service, “Błyskawica” sailed many thousand nautical miles on patrol and combat operations. “Błyskawica” was the first Allied ship to attack a U-boat during WWII, she defended Narwik in 1940 and assisted in evacuation of Dunkirk. She fought against Italian and German aeroplanes in the Mediterranean at Bougie on 12.11.1942. The battle against German destroyers at Ouessant (during Normandy landings) and destruction of a German convoy at La Rochelle were described by the wartime press. As a reward for the merits, the ship was allowed to participate in the Operation “Deadlight” - destruction of German U-boats.
