Ship's Motto: Unus et Omnes - One and All

HMS Cornwall is a Type 22 frigate, "stretched" approximately 17 m longer than the original Broadsword Class. She was launched in October 1985 and commissioned at Falmouth, Cornwall in 1988 by the Ship's sponsor, Diana Princess of Wales. Following the untimely death of Princess Diana, Lady Mary Holborow, Lord Lieutenant of the County of Cornwall assumed responsibilities.

The Ship is the first of the Batch 3 Type 22 Frigates and is part of Devonport Flotilla. The Commanding Officer is Commander Johnny Ley.
HMS Cornwall has battle honours from Barfleur in 1692, the Falkland Islands in 1914 and the Dardanelles in 1915. She is affiliated to the County of Cornwall, The Light Infantry and the Worshipful Guild of Leathersellers amongst others.

Following her return from ampibious exercises inside the Arctic Circle and a period of intensive Operational Sea Training to prove her capability as a fighting platform, HMS Cornwal is embarking on a series of maritime exercises and port visits over the autumn.
