The W and Z class was a class of sixteen destroyers of the Royal Navy launched in 19431944. They were constructed as two flotillas, with names beginning with "W-" and "Z-", respectively, although, like the preceding U and V class, two of the flotilla leaders were named after historical naval figures (as had been Royal Navy practice during the inter-war years). They were known as the 9th and 10th Emergency Flotilla, respectively. They served as fleet and convoy escorts in World War II.
