- Notes: The M class were 'arcticized' and so served mostly in the Arctic on Russian convoys from 1942. Marne and Matchless both went to the Mediterranean for important Malta convoys for a couple of months in the summer of 1942. Marne, along with Martin and Onslaught, caught and sank the German minelayer Ulm in the Barents Sea in Aug 1942. Moved back to the Mediterranean for the landings in North Africa, Marne had her stern blown off by a torpedo from U 515 on 12 Nov 1942, but remained afloat and was repaired. Had second bank of torpedo tubes installed, replacing single 4in AA. Served again in the Arctic to the end of 1944, and then again in the Mediterranean. Transferred to Turkey 16 Aug 1957.
