Notable events involving Fritillary include:
26 Apr 1943
HMS Trusty (Lt.Cdr. E.F Balston, DSO, RN) departed from Durban for Simonstown. She is escorted by HMS Fritillary (Lt.Cdr. W.H. Barker, RD, RNR). En-route exercises are carried out with the escort vessel and SAAF aircraft. During the night of 27/28 April the two ships lost contact. Aircraft searched for Trusty but were unable to find her, looks like some more exercises were needed ! (1)
