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.
