Over the years contacts have been kept up with the crew of the ship - although members of the crew are soon promoted to other ships. Contact is sporadic because the ship is usually on service or exercises. The ship was based in the Gulf during the Gulf War. Contact is normally made whenever the ship docks at Grimsby. In 2003 some crew members attended the Remembrance Sunday Service in Belper. The most recent visit to the ship was by some members of Belper Town Council to Grimsby on 2nd November 2007.
