Re: Beginning of WW2
HMAS AUSTRALIA also exchanged fire with French ships at Dakar in Operation Menace in September 1940. In addition French ships fought French ships, Free French vs. Vichy French.
If you include Vichy and Free French I think the navies include The Royal Navy, Kriegsmarine, Italian Nayy, Imperial Japanese Navy, Royal Thai Navy, The US Navy (Casablanca), Australian Navy (Madagascar) and I'm not sure that ships of the Free Dutch (Jacob van Heemskerck?)weren't at Madagascar as well but whether fire was exchanged I don't know. Other potential opponents include Belgium and Poland
