HMS Montrose making her grand entrance into Devonport after a long stint in the Arabian Gulf, and has been operating from the Royal Navy’s naval support base in Bahrain since 2019.

The frigate has been patrolling the waters of the Gulf, Indian Ocean and Red Sea for the past three-and-half years.

The British Warship’s 186-strong crew have regularly hit world headlines with the scale of narcotics seizures, intercepting boats trying to ship high-tech weaponry in contravention of a UN Security Council Resolution, sizing surface-to-air missiles and engines for cruise missiles.

The crew will man the rails passing Plymouth Hoe on Friday, and our LIVE WEBCAM, will capture her proud sail past the historic waterfront on her way into Devonport Dockyard.

HMS Montrose will undergo maintenance before a final spell of operational duties around the UK early in 2023 and a ‘farewell tour’ across the country and her especially namesake Scottish town of Montrose.
