The Ships

Over the years, three Royal Navy 'wooden walls' HMS Conway, HMS Winchester and HMS Nile served as the cadet training ship HMS Conway. The links below give a potted history of each vessel before and after their service as HMS Conway.

There were other RN and merchant vessels called Conway (or Conway Castle) that are often confused with 'our' HMS Conway. These other Conways are described as well. Finally a few other Niles are described on the Nile page.

The RN Museum confirms that in 1915 an armed trawler was requisitioned from merchant service by the Admiraltyand given the name Conway. No other details are known but for a short period the RN had two vessels called HMS Conway in commision at the same time.
