Duncan Class (1933) DD

This single ship class was the destroyer leader for the 1930 destroyer construction programme, the D Class (1932), Destroyer Flotilla.

As destroyer leader she had an increased complement and working space needed to control a flotilla.

Duncan was similar to the previous year's destroyer leader HMS Kempenfelt and so had the same design and armament as C Class destroyers but was of slightly greater displacement.

The RN destroyer flotilla organisation at the time called for a group of destroyers to be designed, ordered and built as a single group of eight ships. That group on completion formed a single destroyer flotilla. Which had one destroyer leader, whose Captain (D) would command the flotilla.
