HMS York mostly served on the North America and West Indies Station before World War 2

Early in the war the ship escorted convoys in the Atlantic and participated in the Norwegian Campaign in 1940. HMS York was transferred to the Mediterranean theatre in late 1940 where she escorted convoys and the larger ships of the Mediterranean Fleet. She was wrecked in an attack by Italian explosive motorboats of the 10th Flotilla MAS at Suda Bay, Crete in March 1941

The ship’s wreck was salvaged in 1952 and scrapped in Bari
