Title: HMS Lindisfarne P300 & HMS Guernsey P297 - Help needed!
Post by: Jens Boldt on May 12, 2022, 06:02:56 PM
Hello everybody,

during my constant hunt for IMO numbers I lately came across the above mentioned patrol vessels.

IMO.org says that Lindisfarne (IMO 7516333) in 2004 became the Bangladesh Sangu and Guernsey (IMO 7516321) the Bangladesh Turag.
Wikipedia however says that Lindisfarne became Turag and Guernsey became Sangu.

Can anyone say for sure who is right? Wikipedia or IMO.org?

Cheers,

Jens

PS: Until this is solved I followed Wikipedia and added Guernsey's IMO also to Sangu's photos.

A number of sites associated with the Royal Navy all give this info :-
Ex-HMS Lindisfarne became BNS Turag P714, ex-HMS Shetland became BNS Kapatakhaya P912,  ex-HMS Alderney became BNS KaratoaP913, ex-HMS Anglesey became BNS Gomati P914. ex-HMS Orkney was sold to the Trinidad and Tobago Coastguard in 2001 and became TTS Nelson until she was decommissioned in 2015. HMS Jersey (1976) - sold to Bangladesh 1994 - renamed BNS Shaheed Ruhul Amin (A 511) and HMS Guernsey (1977) - sold to Bangladesh 2004 - renamed BNS Sangu (P 713)

So it seems I got it right and IMO.org mixed up the names.

Thanks for the help! :)
