H.M.S. Caprice
World Cruise 1968 Association


Destroyer DO1 - The history of HMS Caprice 1942 - 1979 ... and the men who served in her

The Association, over the years, has accumulated numerous pictures and information of HMS Caprice from 1942 to 1979. In fact we have become the de facto archives of the ship’s history! In 2008, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the 1968 World Cruise it was decided to publish a book. The book's contents grew rapidly from just the 1967-68 Commission to include all of the ship's history.

Issue 3 has now republished as a hardback. Some items have been corrected and some new items added. All the photos and diagrams have been enhanced and some converted to colour . Its 96 pages contain over 130 photos and diagrams.

Price - £17 inc p&p within UK
(£15 Caprice Association members)
