HMS Endurance is the Royal Navy’s sole Ice Patrol Ship. Flexible, capable and unique, she deploys each year in the autumn from her base port of Portsmouth in Hampshire, to the cold and ice of the Antarctica austral summer where she carries out her operational duties for the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the British Antarctic Survey and the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office. 

The aims of this project are to increase everyone’s knowledge of the environment as a whole and show how the Royal Navy contributes to a better world, shaping our lives beyond their traditional military capabilities.
