Killed in Action on board HMS Forrester.
In mid-April 1942, Forester was part of the close cover for Convoy PQ 14 to Murmansk.[25] On 28 April, Forester joined the escort of returning Convoy QP 11, and two days later, when the light cruiser Edinburgh was torpedoed, she and her sister Foresight were detached to escort the crippled cruiser back to Murmansk. On 1 May Edinburgh and her escorts were attacked by the German destroyers Z24, Z25 and Z7 Hermann Schoemann. Forester fired her torpedoes at Z25, but was almost simultaneously hit by three shells. They disabled 'B' and 'X' guns and the hit in No. 1 boiler room temporarily disabled her propulsion machinery. Twelve crewmen were killed, including her captain, and nine were wounded. Foresight was also temporarily disabled and the Germans put another torpedo into Edinburgh, crippling her, before breaking off the engagement to rescue the crew of the crippled Z7 Hermann Schoemann. The two British destroyers took off the survivors from the cruiser and Foresight scuttled the cruiser with a torpedo before heading back to Murmansk for temporary repairs.[26] She sailed on 13 May with Foresight and the destroyers Somali and Matchless as escorts for the light cruiser Trinidad that had been damaged while escorting Convoy PQ 13. The next day the ships came under heavy air attack, and Trinidad was further damaged and set on fire. Forester took off the wounded and other survivors, and Trinidad was sunk by Matchless. Forester arrived at Scapa Flow on 18 May and immediately took passage to a shipyard on the Tyne for repairs that lasted until October. That month, she rejoined the 8th DF and resumed escorting convoys to Russia until April 1943. The ship was then refitted at Leith until June
