01fbinus 3.34kIn mid-August 1940, while steaming in the Red Sea, HMS Royal Sovereign was unsuccessfully attacked by the Italian submarine Galileo Ferraris. Later that month, she returned to Atlantic convoy duties. These lasted until August 1941, when periodic maintenance was effected in Norfolk, Virginia.
HMS Royal Sovereign appears here at the Hammerhead crane, Norfolk Naval Shipyard.
Note: The camo pattern was unofficial. It used Black over the standard light grey, but the little triangle of medium grey on the stern confirms that this was the first version, applied in 1940. That section was painted over in black by 1942.
