WELCOME TO HMS Javelin - a history and a tribute.

HMS Javelin was one of hundreds of ‘anonymous’ Royal Navy destroyers, which served with distinction during WW2. At any one time she was home to some two hundred and eighteen officers and ratings. One of those was my father, Ordinary Seaman JX298741Derek Harry AMEY. His service in the Mediterranean theatre left an indelible mark on the remainder of his life.

The purpose of this site is to remember HMS Javelin and her crew, to keep their memory alive for future generations. I dedicate it to them all, wherever and whenever they served. To give thanks. May their sacrifice, their lives and the historic events they witnessed, never be forgotten.
