Welcome to the website of HMS Vanguard. This site contains information on the history and affiliations of the boat, details of her crew, and will be regularly updated with news and photographs.  We aim to provide family, friends, and anyone else interested with an insight into the day to day running of the submarine and life onboard for the 140 members of the Ship's Company.

This is the 10th vessel in the Royal Navy to bear the name "Vanguard", but the first submarine to do so. She is the first of the nuclear powered Vanguard class Trident Ballistic Missile Submarines, and is tasked with maintaining the United Kingdom's independent strategic nuclear deterrent.
