Built by Devonport Dockyard. Laid Down 21 April 1938.

Launched 21 March 1940. Completed 14 October 1941.

Trinidad joined the Home Fleet on completion and served on Arctic convoy duties. While covering PQ13 she engaged German destroyers and hit Z26, but was hit by one of her own torpedoes, which circled. The damaged ship was brought into Murmansk for temporary repairs, and sailed for home on 13 May 1942. However, she was attacked by aircraft en route and hit by bombs from aircraft of III/KG30 on 15 May, which crippled her. The wreck was sunk by Matchless. The story of her last fight can be found here.
