They were an imposing class of vessels, technologically quite improved over some of the other classes, but I guess with the material shortages and building problems during WW2 that its good that they were completed pretty much as per specification. If my memory serves me right I think they even got a mention in "The Cruel Sea".

Fine image japottinger
Although the Tribals seemed to get all the credit and were generally assumed to be britiains most powerfully armed destroyers their eight guns fired a 400 lb salvo with a 50 lbs shell whilst the six guns of the L class fired a 372 lbs salvo - seemingly lighter the higher velocity and shell weight of 62 lbs gave this class the best hitting power plus they mounted eight torpedoes against the tribals four thus they were the better all-round ship

Such a pity that one or two of these ships were not preserved for future generations to experience what life aboard may have been like.
