High Quality Content by WIKIPEDIA articles! HMS Diomede (F16) was a
Leander-class frigate of the Royal Navy (RN). She was built by
Yarrow Shipbuilders in Glasgow. Diomede was launched on 15 April
1969 and commissioned on 2 April 1971. Her nickname was "Dimweed."
In 1972, Diomede took part in the Second Cod War during the fishing
dispute with Iceland, though thankfully Diomede's involvement was
more quiet than her involvement in the subsequent Cod War. Also
that year, Diomede joined the 3rd Frigate Squadron which was then
based in the Far East.
