the destroyer is one of the A-I classes, generally known as pre war even though a few the later H + I were not completed till the war had started, probably about F but i can not quite make out exactly which, the photo was probably taken in 1940/41 with the first stage of modifications
It seems to me that this would not be a pre-war destroyer as the mainmast is cut down.
Perhaps "early" but not "pre"?
it is a standard pre war A-H destroyer, she has NO Hedgehog! THE SUB DOES APPEAR TO HAVE BEEN ADDED , there is only the bow !
That image is so heavily retouched the 'sub' could be fake.
