Welcome to the website of 'The Fortress of the Sea', HMS Edinburgh, the penultimate Type 42 Destroyer in the Royal Navy. She is the largest of the Type 42 Destroyers and was launched by Lady Heseltine in 1983.

The idea of the site is to keep friends and family informed of life onboard during our absences from home waters. The following pages will include regular news updates, lots of photographs, features and information on port visits. However, there is plenty for the casual visitor to view and you are encouraged to navigate your way around the site in order to find out more about HMS Edinburgh. Enjoy the site! HMS Edinburgh - Scotland's Capital Ship!
