HMIS Bengal (J243)
HMIS Bengal (J243) was a Bathurst class corvette of the Royal Indian Navy (RIN) where she served during World War II. History[edit] HMIS Bengal was ordered from Cockatoo Docks and Engineering Company, Australia for the Royal Indian Navy in 1940. She was commissioned into the RIN in 1942. Operations in World War II[edit] HMIS Bengal was a part of the Eastern Fleet during World War II, and escorted numerous convoys between 1942-45.[1] On 11 November 1942, Bengal was escorting the Dutch tanker Ondina[2] to the southwest of Cocos Islands in the Indian Ocean. Two Japanese commerce raiders armed with six-inch guns attacked the Ondina. Bengal fired her single four-inch gun, Ondina fired her 102 mm and both scored hits on the Hōkoku Maru which shortly blew up and sank.[2] The other raider, the Aikoku Maru escaped.[2] Although both Bengal and the Ondina were damaged in the action, they reached port safely.[3] Notes[edit]^ Kindell, Don.
