Service with the Royal Navy as HMS Gannet and T.S. Mercury

1878

A sloop of the Victorian Royal Navy, HMS Gannet was built on the River Medway at Sheerness in 1878. Designed to patrol the world’s oceans, she ‘flew the flag’ protecting British interests around the world.
Powered by both sail and steam, with a hull constructed from stout teak planking on a strong iron frame, this highly significant vessel forms part of the United Kingdom’s core national collection of historic ships.

HM Submarine Ocelot

Launched in 1962, HM Submarine Ocelot was the last Royal Navy warship built at Chatham.

HMS Cavalier

Built in 1944, HMS Cavalier served in the Arctic, Western Approaches and British Pacific Fleet before finally paying off at Chatham in 1972.
