Heavy cruiser HMS Frobisher (D 81)

4 Jan 1940
The cadets training ship HMS Frobisher, which had been refitting at Portsmouth Dockyard since 1939, departed Portsmouth in tow of HMRT Marauder. They arrived at Plymouth the following day. Frobisher was then taken in hand for rearming and refit for operational deployment at the Devonport Dockyard. She was placed in dockyard control on 22 January 1940. The work, which was expected to be completed around mid-1941 at latest, would however be delayed due to priority being given to other work. (1)
