PRAGUE was damaged by bombs at Dunkirk 01.06.40. While not scoring a direct hit near misses caused severe damage and put her starboard engine out of action. PRAGUE was taken in tow by the tug LADY BRASSEY which beached her at Deal later in the day. (John de S. Winser, B.E.F. Ships before, at and after Dunkirk)
