During World War II, Operation Stone Age or Stoneage was the merchant convoy that reached Malta from Egypt on 20 November 1942 breaking the siege of that island. Followed Operation Train.

The convoy consisted of four ships and escort (three cruisers and ten destroyers) that reached Malta from Alexandria. The cruiser HMS Arethusa was seriously damaged by torpedo and returned to Alexandria. This operation is seen as the end of the two-year siege of Malta.
