HMS Cochrane

Recent Page Trail:

HMS Cochrane is the name of a Royal Navy shore facility which has existed in a number of locations due to the use of the name on a number of satellite establishments.

HMS Cochrane was first commissioned in 1938, as the Rosyth Naval Base which was paid off in 1947.

The name was restored in 1948, when it took over from HMS Lochinvar, until it was again paid off in 1962.

It was recommissioned in 1968, and was finally closed in 1996.

A number of satellite establishments also bore the name:

  • HMS Cochrane I was the Rosyth base between 1940 and 1945.
  • HMS Cochrane II was the Rosyth supply and accounting base for tenders between 1940 and 1945.
  • HMS Cochrane II was the naval barracks at Donibristle between 1962 and 1963.
  • HMS Cochrane III was the Primrose Camp training centre and later accommodation establishment between 1942 and 1946.
  • HMS Cochrane V was the ledger for personnel involved in Operation Apostle (the return to Norway) in 1945.

This information originated within Wikipedia, and although we would not normally use this as a single source, it is the only online reference which has provided this level of detail, although it fails to cite any sort of reference or source.

It was recovered in January 2010, and is quoted as seen then. Notably, the dates given there appear to conflict with independent references given for the facilities referred to, so the satellite information noted here should not be considered definitive.
