HMS Argyll Docks in Glasgow

Royal Navy’s Type 23 frigate HMS Argyll returned to Glasgow on Friday, March 6, for the first time in five years.

The Clyde-built warship was alongside the city’s King George V Dock for a five day stay, and her crew had a packed programme of events during the visit.

HMS Argyll was constructed at Scotstoun in the 1980s and is the longest-serving type 23 in the Royal Navy fleet.

Most recently the ship used her advanced Artisan radar and Lynx helicopter to spot and monitor a Russian warship in the English Channel and has also completed successful Caribbean and North Atlantic missions where she helped seize £77M worth of drugs.

The Glasgow visit comes ahead of her maintenance period which will see HMS Argyll’s systems and hull enhanced.
