Completed : 24th March 1954
Type : Destroyer
Class : Daring
Builder : Yarrow

The ship was built at Clydebank, Glasgow, by Yarrow and Co. Ltd. (Yard No 1846 ), laid down 3 April 1947 and launched Thursday 8 May 1952 by Lady McGrigor, wife of Admiral of the Fleet Sir Rhoderick McGrigor, and first commissioned 29 March 1954. Originally the name was to be Druid but this changed to Diana during building. At the time Diana was considered a large destroyer, being nearly as big as a pre-war light cruiser. The Daring-class was a logical outcome of the Pacific War, where the ability to stay at sea for long periods was of prime importance.
