This month’s short picture gallery shows HMS Naiad captured from it’s helicopter above the ship as she steams.
Click here to find out more details about the history of the ship and her commission in the Royal Navy.
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.
The memory of the ships and those who served aboard is being kept alive with the formation of the HMS Naiad Association in 2011. The association is open-to-all and we welcome all contact and information that will help us honour the ships, men, family, friends and loved-ones of those who served aboard throughout the years. We particularly welcome anyone with experiences of the latest ships that served in World War II and the most recent Leander class frigate.
The World War II cruiser had a short 3-year commission, eventually sunk in March 1942 whilst steaming across the Mediterranean bound for Alexandria. Under constant attack, she was hit by a single torpedo by a U-Boat just north of Egypt.
