The HMS Colombo (D89) was one of the 28 C-class cruisers. Units of this type were built with the idea of escorting larger ships of the Royal Navy in mind, and their main task was to protect them against German torpedo boats and destroyers, especially against the threat of a torpedo attack. They have also been adapted primarily to operate in the North Sea basin. For this reason, they were characterized by relatively strong armament for this class of ships, good seaworthiness, good armor, limited comfort of the crews, and average maximum speed. HMS Colombo (D89) was assigned to the Eastern Fleet operating in the Far East shortly after entering service. He served in this part of the world from 1919-1926 and later from 1932-1935. The unit entered the reserve after 1935 but returned to active service shortly after the outbreak of World War II. HMS Colombo (D89) in the years 1940-1942 operated mainly in the Indian Ocean basin. In the period 1942-1943 it was converted into an anti-aircraft cruiser (eng. anti-aircraft cruiser), as a result of which, for example, the main armament of the ship changed. The unit happily survived World War II and was not sold for scrap until 1948.
