British destroyer HMS Ambuscade (D38) underway in coastal waters during World War II.

HMS Ambuscade (D38) was a British Royal Navy destroyer which served in the Second World War. She and her Thornycroft competitor, HMS Amazon, were prototypes designed to exploit advances in construction and machinery since World War I and formed the basis of Royal Navy destroyer evolution up to the Tribal-class of 1936.

She was launched at Yarrow on January 15, 1926, served in World War II, and was broken up at Troon in 1946.
