Notable events involving Thames include:
26 Aug 1940
HMS Thames takes the abandoned and burning British merchant Stakesby in tow for Stornoway. The vessel had been torpedoed the day before by German U-boat U-124 in convoy HX-65A 23 nautical miles north of Butt of Lewis, Hebrides. The ship was beached at Glumaig Bay after the tow rope broke and sank in shallow water, but was later refloated, repaired and returned to service.
