Shop the all new Destroyer T-Shirt! To commemorate 30 years since the end of the First Gulf War we have designed a new collection of military t-shirts, each depicting a different area of the Armed Forces that was part of Operation Granby.
This cotton t-shirt in legion blue features the Batch 3 Type 42 Destroyer HMS Gloucester. The Royal Navy made an enormous contribution to Operation Granby. In company with a combined British and American Escort group, tasked in support of the USS MISSOURI (an active WWII era Battleship armed with large 16inch guns that were being used to bombard targets ashore), HMS Gloucester was able to detected an Iraqi SILKWORM anti-ship missile attack headed for the USS MISSOURI, and in a matter of seconds, successfully engage the silkworm heading for the US Battleship, destroying the missile before it reached its target.
