Home History Association Reunion Slops Gallery Shipmates About Us


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.

Enjoy your visit and feel free to  contact us..

HMS Naiad WWII Cruiser



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.

Our Charity


In memory of our former shipmate John D’Albert who servered aboard HMS Naiad in the 1980’s, the association has adopted The Royal British Legion’s Galanos House as our primary charity.   

Approximately £206 was raised at last year’s reunion in Bristol and we will continue to support the Royal British Legion and the fantastic work they carry out, caring for former service personnel.

To find out more visit Friends of John Dalbert or HMS Naiad Facebook groups;  HMS Naiad Association or HMS Naiad Old Shipmates
