Codrington Class (1930) DD

The Codrington was a single ship Class of Destroyer Leaders.  HMS Codrington was the destroyer leader for the 1927 programme of destroyers the A Class (1930) DD

The RN destroyer flotilla organisation at the time called for a group of destroyers to be designed, ordered and built as a single group of eight ships. That group on completion formed a single destroyer flotilla. Which had one destroyer leader, whose Captain (D) would command the flotilla.

The destroyer leader had slightly reduced armament to allow the increased complement and working space needed to control the flotilla, in a ship which had the same performance as the ships under its command.
