ANGUSalive’s Museums & Galleries team will shortly be loaned some important reminders of the HMS Montrose, which will be on display from October 28 at Montrose Museum.
The Type 23 frigate was put into retirement earlier this year and has now been put up for sale by the Royal Navy and will be dismantled for scrap recycling.
However, the ship’s bell, nameboard and a kickplate from HMS Montrose were presented to ANGUSalive which will be part of the display. They arrived in Angus after local man David Moxey contacted Angus MP Dave Doogan following Montrose’s final visit to her namesake port in May.
Emma Gilliland, ANGUSalive’s Museums & Galleries Collection lead said “We are thrilled to have this significant collection on loan to Montrose Museum. The HMS Montrose is steeped in history and we’re delighted we will be able to help tell its story to visitors“.
