HMS Dauntless was commissioned in 2010 and is one of the Navy’s new Type 45 destroyers; with a crew of 200, the Dauntless can reach her design speed of 29 knots in 70 seconds. It is an air defence destroyer with short and long range anti-air capability.
We have developed a good relationship with the Ship and its Officers. A number of our members have been on board and we have entertained them at Clothworkers’ Hall, including a lunch for 100 of the Ship’s Company during a visit by the Dauntless to London.
We have provided over £30,000 to the Ship’s Welfare Fund to allow funding for social, sporting and training activities for the crew.
