Once a ship had been built and launched she then had to be out-fitted, and then complete sea trials
before being handed over to her new owners,
of course when the ship is for the Royal Navy then she has to also complete her trials to the satisfaction of the Navy Board before being commissioned into the service.
HMS BASSET was the first of her class designated as a "Dog Class" armed trawler built and designed in the Leith Shipyards of Henry Robb Ltd and the fore runner of all other of her class.
We try here to give as full an account of her history as time and research permits, if you know of missing info
or you have any photographs of her, then please get in touch and we shall update her story as we go along.
