Welcome aboard the HMS Naiad website and thanks for visiting us.
We invite you to find out more about the four Naiads that have been commissioned for the British Royal Navy since 1797. The ships have had interesting histories ranging from the Battle of Trafalgar, the WWII Malta Convoys and on to the Icelandic Cod War in the 1970's and Gulf Patrol during the Iran/Iraq war.

John D’Albert -
The association is saddened to note that our former shipmate John D’Albert has recently passed away at The Royal British Legion Care Home, Galanos House in Warwickshire. In his latter years John had suffered from dementia and motor neurone disease and was cared for by the wonderful staff who work there.
Many former crew members will surely remember John from HMS Naiad’s 1980 Far East trip when the frigate visited many countries including Turkey, Kenya, Pakistan, Singapore, Hong Kong and Japan. John was a former Royal Navy medic.
The funeral will be at 14:15hrs on Tuesday 19 July at Oakley Wood Crematorium, Oakley Wood, Bishop Tachbrook, Leamington Spa, CV33 9QP
Afterwards those present will return to Galanos House, Banbury Road, Southam, Warwickshire CV47 2BL. All welcome. There will be family flowers and a collection for the Royal British Legion. Details of a memorial in Plymouth will follow.
Galanos House is run by the Royal British Legion. For more details or to find out more you can visit Friends of John Dalbert or HMS Naiad Facebook groups, HMS Naiad Association or HMS Naiad Old Shipmates
