Hi Barry

Did a quick search on this ship and found this info:

On 5 July 1940 HMS Whirlwind (Lt.Cdr. John Malcolm Rodgers, RN) was torpedoed and sunk by the German submarine U-34 about 120 nautical miles west of Lands End, south-west England in position 50º17'N, 08º48'W.
The U-boat reported that one torpedo hit underneath the bridge that broke off the forepart that sank immediately while the rest of the ship stayed afloat for some time.

I think you will have a long way to go to find it. :unsure:
