HMS Hotspur (DD-02)

Jump to navigation Jump to search

HMS Hotspur (DD-02) was a Havoc-class Destroyer within Second Fleet. Commanded by CAPTSG Michael Flanagan, Hotspur claimed Rantoul, IL as her charter city.


HMS Hotspur first commissioned under the command of Commander Sherman Day, as a part of Second Fleet out of Michigan City, IN.[1] In less than half a year, however, this iteration of Hotspur was returned to the Active Reserve as the crew upgraded to HMS Gallant (CL-315) in April of 2015.[2]

Two years later, in April of 2017, Hotspur recommissioned under then-Commander Michael Flanagan, once more returning to Second Fleet, this time out of Rantoul, IL.[3] Almost immediately that same month, she was moved from independent operations to Task Group 22.1, where she remained for the remainder of her tour of duty. [4] So noteworthy was this tour that the hull was issued the RMU in 2018, for reasons outlined below. However, all good things must end, and in September of 2022, Hotspur was once more returned to the Active Reserve, as the crew which had inhabited that hull for five years moved on to HMS Menelaus (BC-569). [5] This iteration, it should be noted, also attended Capricon 2020.
