BNS Shaheed Ruhul Amin was an Island-class offshore patrol vessel of the Bangladesh Navy used as a training ship. She was built and served as a Royal Navy Island-class patrol vessel HMS Jersey (P295) from 1977 to 1993.


HMS Jersey was built at Aberdeen, being launched in 1976 by Princess Anne and subsequently commissioned into the Royal Navy later that year. She was the first ship of the class to be commissioned; six more followed her.

As part of the Fishery Protection Squadron, along with her sister ships, Jersey patrolled the waters around the UK (sometimes also Gibraltar) providing protection for Britain's fishing grounds, as well as providing oil and gas platform protection. In 1993 she became involved in the Cherbourg incident, when Jersey captured the French trawler La Calypso in the Channel Islands waters on 2 April 1993.

She was decommissioned and subsequently sold to Bangladesh in 1993, entering its navy as the training ship BNS Shaheed Ruhul Amin, being accompanied by all but one of its sister ships. All of the Island class were decommissioned by January 2004, being replaced by the modern River-class patrol vessels.

Career in Bangladesh

BNS Shaheed Ruhul Amin was commissioned to the Bangladesh Navy on 29 January 1994. She was based at Chittagong. She was serving as a training ship for new sailors and officers of Bangladesh Navy. On 16 June 2020, she was decommissioned from the Bangladesh Navy.
