Type 14 Blackwood Class (1956) FF
Anti-submarine Frigate

All the ships of this class were named after frigate captains of the Napoleonic Wars. Two of the ships were named after the same person, Captain Pellew, who was made Lord Exmouth for his services.

The Exmouth was the first major British warship to be powered entirely by gas turbines.

The early scrapping of most of this class was due to their small size which did not allow refitting with more advanced weapons.
