Fun fact: The Edinburgh isn't the only British light cruiser in the game to have carried gold bullion as cargo.

I just found an article on how HMS Emerald, among other ships, was used as part of Operation Fish in 1940 to help transport Britain's gold supplies to Canada in order to keep them out of Nazi hands should Operation Sealion have taken place. It's not much, but I found it quite interesting since I'd never heard about Operation Fish before and I figured there might be a few people here that might want to read it too.

Hope you enjoy it!

Sincerely,

1Sherman.

Emerald is a great little ship - I remember there was a perm cam for it years back!

Shame it's not still available - I'd play her a lot more if it was...but she's pretty much a Port Queen for me now. :Smile_honoring:

Edinburgh should have an include ''+50% credit to the owner if survive, bonus credit to the one that sink her''.

I'm assuming that's why Azur Lane Edinburgh has gold falling out of her dress

Edinburgh was carrying gold for another purpose when she sank. Hers was payment from the Soviets as part of the Lend-Lease Act.
