As well as warfare roles, HMS Kent works on disaster relief and surveillance
Type 23 Frigate, HMS Kent is visiting her affiliated county and welcoming local people onboard to have a look round.
She will be at Cruise Terminal 2 in the Port of Dover and will throw open her gangway on Saturday 18 September 2010.
From 10am until 3pm, people from Dover and the surrounding area can have a tour of the ship.
There will also be the opportunity to chat to members of the ship's company and learn more about life onboard.
"It is a great honour to bring HMS Kent into her affiliated town after a gap of several years," said Commander Cooke-Priest. "It gives the ship an excellent opportunity to renew our links with this great seafaring town and thank all for the support that we've received.
"We really hope that local people, who are always very supportive of us, will come along and see the ship for themselves."
HMS Kent was built at Scotstoun on the Clyde and was launched in May 1998 by HRH Princess Alexandra. She was commissioned on 8 June 2000 and is based in Portsmouth.
