This is a sister ship to ORP Grom. Both were build before WW II and took part in all major naval operations in the Atlantic during WW II. It is a must see for anyone who visits Gdynia.

We found this by surprise in Gdynia. It was a nice hour's wander around. Interesting to hear it had helped save the Isle of Wight. It was nice to learn all about how it had been used.
