Welcome aboard HMS Naiad’s website. 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.
This year marks the 75th anniversary of the sinking of the World War II cruiser. HMS Naiad 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.
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the sinking HMS Naiad in World War II the Association will hold this year’s AGM and Reunion on Tyneside. HMS Naiad was laid-down at Hebburn-On-Tyne.
Association members visited Newcastle during January to confirm details of the event which will be held in the city, at the Copthorne Hotel on Quayside from Friday 13th to Sunday 15th October. A Gala Dinner will be held on the Saturday and it is hoped a visit will be arranged to HMS Calliope - this will be confirmed in future updates.
Please see the reunion page for details and prices, as always £25 deposit is due by 30th April with the outstanding balance no later than 30th August.
