Welcome to HMS Nottingham's Home Page. Please take the time to explore our site and learn more about HMS Nottingham. Our Ship is the sixth and latest ship to bear the name.

Laid down in February 1978 and constructed at Vosper Thorneycroft's Woolston yard, she was launched on 18 February 1980 by Lady Leach, wife of the then First Sea Lord. 

HMS Nottingham's close relationship with Nottingham city is typified by affiliations with the Lambley Ward at the City Hospital, The Shepherd and Woodlands Special Needs Schools, Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce and RNR Sherwood, to name but a few.

Our motto is 'Foy Pour Devoir' meaning 'Faith for Duty' Royal Navy Community Site
