French Destroyer Maille Breze - Memorial
Maille Breze Warship Memorial
On 30th April 1940 the Maille Brez was anchored in the upper Firth of Clyde when a torpedo tube malfunction launched a live torpedo onto her deck creating extensive damage. The crew abandoned ship except for those trapped in the galley. Although port firecrews controled the blaze she sank before all hands could be rescued. Six were killed, 47 wounded and 21 unaccounted as missing. This monument records their names.
