Description:
Three ships of the Royal Navy have been named HMS Quorn, named after the Quorn hunt:
The first Quorn, launched in 1916 was a Hunt-class minesweeper that served in World War I and was sold in 1922.
The second Quorn (L66), launched in 1940, was a Hunt-class destroyer sunk by the Germans in 1944.
The third and current Quorn (M41), launched in 1988, is a minesweeper of another Hunt class.

The Hunt class is a class of thirteen mine countermeasure vessels (MCMV) of the Royal Navy. They combine the separate role of the traditional minesweeper and that of the active minehunter in one hull. They are the largest warships ever built out of glass reinforced plastic and are the last in operation to use the famous Napier Deltic diesel engine.
