Following the recent visits of H.M.S. Clyde and H.M.S. Montrose  our gunners were delighted to host a visit to East Fort by Gunners of H.M.S. Dauntless which was currently in Cape Town prior to doing duty in the Falklands. Hout Bay Heritage Assn - Helping to build Community Pride.

A few days later, our gunners were treated to a tour of H.M.S. Dauntless as guests of Captain Will Warrender hosted by Lt Steven White. H.M.S. Dauntless, a Type 45 anti-air warfare destroyer,  is one of the most powerful warships ever launched by the Royal Navy. You can read all about Dauntless which had several predecessors of the same name. One such being H.M.S. Dauntless c.1808, a ship sloop of 18 guns, which was a later version of H.M.S. Echo who briefly visited Hout Bay in Sept 1795.
