HMS Cleopatra went out to Gibraltar early in 1942 , and on 9 February she sailed for Malta, where she was immediately damaged by a bomb
After repair she was transferred to Alexandria early in March for the 15th Cruiser Squadron. She was Admiral Philip Vians flagship during the Second Battle of Sirte, when his group of four light-cruisers and seventeen destroyers held off an Italian force which included the battleship Littorio, two heavy cruisers, a light-cruiser and ten destroyers, which had all been sent to intercept their convoy to Malta
In June 1942 HMS Cleopatra covered Operation Harpoon and Vigorous, and in August bombarded Rhodes as a diversion for the Operation Pedestal convoy
