But his promises were never to be kept, because on November 13, 1943, just a few sort weeks after his father's death, HMS Dulverton was attacked by a German Dornier Do217 aircraft off the Greek island of Leros and hit by Hs293 Glider Bomb
The author includes in-depth discussions of many weapons, such as the Fritz X guided bomb, the Hs 293 glider bomb

I remember my ship being in company with an American cruiser which was hit by a glider bomb
and suffered more than 100 casualties.
