HMS Galatea Copper Ashtray - Click for the bigger picture

HMS Galatea Copper Ashtray

HMS Galatea was a Cruiser launched in 1934 and weighed 5,220 tons and served with distinction in WWII. Her luck however ran out on 14th December 1942 when she was sunk by torpedoes from U-557 off Alexandrea. Sadly Captain Sim, 22 of his Officers and 447 Ratings were killed. These little trays were offered for sale onboard via the NAAFI shop to serving crew members and were mainly bought as gift for friends and relations back home. This and the rest of the small collection we are listing today are all of the period and would make a great gift for anyone with an association with this fine ship. Measures 4.25" diameter (11.0 cm)
