    Notes 
    • From Wikipedia H.M.S. Bulldog HMS Bulldog (H91) was a B-class destroyer of the British Royal Navy that saw service throughout World War II, seeing service on convoy duty in the Atlantic and Arctic. Her most notable action was the first naval capture of a complete Enigma machine and coding documents from the German submarine U-110 on 9 May 1941. After repairs at Chatham Dockyard, on 4 June she was transferred to the 1st Destroyer Flotilla to support evacuations from French ports in "Operation Cycle". Bulldog limped back to Portsmouth Dockyard for repairs. On 24 August, while still under repair, the ship was damaged by splinters during an air raid, and her commanding officer was killed.
