HMS Sheffield
HMS Ardent

On the on 4 May HMS SHEFFIELD was hit by an Exocet missile. below are some photographs taken by the crew, they show the damage and rescue efforts of both Yarmouth and Arrow. Several days later in the early hours of 9 May Yarmouth went along side the stricken ship  and passed a tow.  For twenty-nine hours HMS SHEFFIELD, with the White Ensign still flying, was towed much of the time in daylight and within range of enemy aircraft until, as the wind increased to gale force, the towed ship heeled over and at 7am on 10 May, sank.
