BB Warspite shelling Brest fortress 25 August 1944

Hi all,

On 25 August 1944 British battleship Warspite carried out a bombardment of strong points off the fortress of Brest. She was escorted by 5 destroyers. Do you know which ones?

Thank you very much
Jordi

They were the British destroyers HMS Fame, HMS Duncan, HMS Hotspur, and HMS Inconstant, and the Canadian destroyer HMCS Assiniboine.
