Would you help me identify this ship?

I'm seem to remember a type 14 being used as Harbour Training Ship for Sultan/Collingwood mid to late 70's before being replaced by a Tribal class (Ashanti I think) and the Daring class HMS Diamond.

Ready to be corrected but worked on them during OEM's course and again on Mech's course

In the 1970 2nd f Sqn was mainly type 14 s i think it was Hardy, Dundas, Duncan and Exmouth and captin 2nd f Sqn was on the good old Unwanted

'Undented' (HMS UNDAUNTED) even had a helo pad and I remember her sister ship GRENVILLE was also in the 2nd F.S. in 1972/3.

Penelope was No.2 Second Frigate Squadron in '65 and if I remember correctly Captain F was also a Leander but which one escapes me at the moment. Lofoten was also in the squadron and used to carry a number of Landrovers for us to use when we went off on a squadron jolly. I remember getting lost on more than one occasion driving round Copenhagen, all the bridges seemed to look the same, but the cops were friendly and would guide you back to the ship.

HMS PENELOPE - Commissioned into 20th F.S. at Londonderry in Oct '63. Refitted Devonport Jun '67 then used as AUWE Trials Ship (propeller/noise trials) based at Portland. Refitted Devonport Oct - Dec '70 and used for towing trials off Gib. More trials (including Seawolf 1971/2) before paid off for refit at Devonport Dec '77. Modernised and recommissioned with Exocet Dec '81.

HMS LOFOTEN - Ex-LST 3027 converted as Helicopter Support Ship Jun '64. Replaced by purpose-built ENGADINE in 1967.

HMS RUSSELL - Replaced fellow Type 14 HMS BLACKWOOD as Harbour Training Ship, Portsmouth July 1974 until 1984. Sold to Pounds and broken up in July 1985.

HMS DIAMOND - Daring Class destroyer that replaced Weapon Class destroyer HMS CROSSBOW as Harbour Training Ship for engine room personnel at Portsmouth in 1970. Sold and broken up on the Medway in 1981. Replaced as HTS by Tribal Class frigate HMS ASHANTI which was sunk as a target by HM submarines SCEPTRE and SPARTAN in 1988.

(Edited to add bit about Ashanti)

Cheers NG, that's been bugging me for ages

Edited to add..Do Sultan/Collingrad still have an HTS, if so what do they have now? I know Whaley has Bristol and Raleigh's got the Brecon

Most engineering training is achieved with shore simulators these days although classes still go to sea for application training. See here on the RN website for facilities now available at SULTAN.
