ASSOCIATION OF ROYAL NAVY TYPE 21 AMAZON CLASS FRIGATES
AND EVERYONE WHO SERVED ON THEM 1971-1994

AVENGER


Royal Navy Type 21 Frigates were sleek fast ships which served with distinction and were very popular with the crew. Many sailors served on more than one of the class. Referred to as the
21 CLUB

Unlike other frigates which had many small living quarters, 21s had relatively small ship's companies, but large messdecks of up to 48 which created great Camaraderie on board.

8 of the class were built from 1971-1975 (in cronological order)
HMS AMAZON F169, HMS ANTELOPE F170, HMS ACTIVE F171, HMS AMBUSCADE 172, HMS ARROW 173, HMS ALACRITY F174, HMS ARDENT F184 and HMS AVENGER F185

Type 21 Frigates were the work- horses of the RN during the 1980s and were involved in the entire range of activities. Seven of the class saw action in the 1982 Falklands war
Sadly ARDENT & ANTELOPE were lost during the conflict in June 1982.

The remaining 6 ships were sold to the Pakistan Navy in 1993/4
