It is the City of Coventry itself that is twinned with HMS Diamond and, as such, the City of Coventry Freemen’s Guild also has a member of the Court who liases with a member of the ship’s company.

For many years now that task has been carried out by Past Master Bob Crane.

HMS Diamond

News Item – March 2018

HMS Diamond has now returned from sea-trials

HMS Diamond has now returned from sea-trials following  major repairs which caused her early return from Deployment in the Mediterranean.
It would seem the the repairs have been carried out successfully. However, a few other problems were found and these are being or have been addressed. After all, that’s what sea trials are all about, so that is to be expected. I know that all the stops have been pulled out and great efforts are being made by all concerned to get Diamond in tip top condition. Diamond has to be on top form especially if my information is correct that Diamonds next deployment is I believe to be the main escort and air protection vessel when escorting the new aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth on her maiden voyage the United States, which will be quite exciting I’m sure, and a wonderful honour.
If you know anyone else who would be interested in receiving “Friends of Diamond” information emails please get them to email me for inclusion.
That’s all for now,
Bob Crane

Past Master Bob Crane
