HMS Eagle sinking with Empire Hope in foreground. Empire Hope, together with Waimarama and Wairangi were also lost before the convoy reached Malta. Virtually 10% of SS&As fleet lost in little over 24 hours.
Many brave men lost in this vital Operation that can be argued was the real turning point of WW2. Churchill claimed it was El Alamein, but without Pedestal there would have been no victory for Monty in the desert.
