Welcome to the home page of HMS Montrose. We hope that you will enjoy the site and that you get a good feel for what we are like as a ship and as a team. We aim to give you a flavour of the work that we do and the role we can perform.

With a complement of approximately 175 and an average age of 23, we have a young and vibrant Ship's Company. HMS Montrose has recently completed a very successful 7-month deployment to the Gulf, helping with the fight against terrorism and lawlessness on the high seas east of the Suez Canal.  With the fourth major deployment completed in four years the ship will now enter a period of repair and deep maintenance and will return to the active fleet in the middle of next year.

The Ship has a comprehensive suite of updated weapons, sensors and machinery, however it is the men and women who make Montrose a truly versatile and capable warship.

The ship's motto is " Mare ditat rosa decorat" (The sea enriches and the rose adorns).
