[​EN] HMS Dido, the leader of her class, was started in October 1937. In July 1939, she was completed and commissioned a year later. HMS Dido's first years of service were marked by convoy escort missions in the Atlantic, before joining the Eastern Mediterranean fleet in April 1941.

As a member of the Royal Navy's Mediterranean forces, HMS Dido took part in many important operations, including landings in Sicily and the Italian mainland, as well as in the south of France. During her service in the Mediterranean, HMS Dido played a variety of roles, from resupply to coastal bombardment to troop evacuations. Apart from this, Dido witnessed the surrender of the Italian fleet at Taranto in September 1943.

In 1944, HMS Dido briefly returned to Great Britain before being sent to escort convoys in the Arctic. In 1945, HMS Dido was sent to Copenhagen, where the warship fired the last naval shell of the war in Europe, not to fight but to celebrate the surrender of the German Kriegsmarine.

Some time after the end of the Second World War, HMS Dido joined the ranks of the Royal Navy's reserve fleet, remaining in service for another good decade. In 1957, however, HMS Dido was decommissioned and sold to scrap merchants.

[​FR] Le HMS Dido, le chef de file de sa classe, a été commencé en octobre 1937. En juillet 1939, il était achevé et mis en service un an plus tard. Les premières années de service du HMS Dido furent marquées par des missions d'escorte de convoi dans l'Atlantique, avant de rejoindre la flotte de la Méditerranée orientale en avril 1941.

En tant que membre des forces méditerranéennes de la Royal Navy, le HMS Dido a pris part à de nombreuses opérations importantes, notamment les débarquements en Sicile et sur le continent italien, ainsi que dans le sud de la France. Au cours de son service en Méditerranée, le HMS Dido a joué divers rôles, allant du ravitaillement aux évacuations de troupes en passant par le bombardement des côtes. En dehors de cela, le Dido a assisté à la reddition de la flotte italienne à Taranto en septembre 1943.

En 1944, le HMS Dido est brièvement retourné en Grande-Bretagne avant d'être envoyé en escorte des convois dans l'Arctique. En 1945, le HMS Dido a été envoyé à Copenhague, où le navire de guerre a tiré le dernier obus de la marine de la guerre en Europe, pas pour combattre mais pour célébrer la reddition de la Kriegsmarine allemande.

Quelque temps après la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale, le HMS Dido a rejoint les rangs de la flotte de réserve de la Royal Navy, restant en service pendant une autre bonne décennie. En 1957, toutefois, le HMS Dido fut mis hors service et vendu aux ferrailleurs.
