History​
HMS Bronington was Constructed by Cook Welton & Gemmel at Hull and Beverley she is one of the Coniston class of minesweepers which were constructed between 1951 and 1959

She was named H.M.S. Humber and was stationed with the 10th M.S.S. R.N.R. In 1958 she was commissioned as Bronington and sent to the 100th M.S.S

In 1965 she was converted into a minehunter at Rosyth and stationed with the 1st M.C.M.S. In 1974 she was refitted at Gibraltar and then returned to Rosyth to rejoin the 1st M.C.M.S

HRH The Prince of Wales was in command for most of 1976 and visited her at the museum in 1992

After being decommissioned from service, the ship was purchased in January 1989 by the Bronington Trust, a registered charity, whose patron Charles, Prince of Wales commanded this vessel in 1976
