HMS Cromer visited Dundee on November 6–9, 1998 (for a Dundee navy day and Armistice Day commemorations) when she was accompanied by various warships from European countries including: Norwegian minelayer/command ship N 52 KNM Vidar, Norwegian minesweeper KNM Maloy, Dutch minehunter M 860 Hr.Ms. Schiedam, Belgian minehunter M 917 BNS Crocus, Type 23 frigate HMS Montrose and German minesweeper F45 FGS Volkingen.
She was decommissioned in 2001 before being refitted for use as a training ship at the Britannia Royal Naval College at Dartmouth. In keeping with tradition, for this role the ship has been renamed Hindostan. As she is not a commissioned ship she is not prefixed "HMS".
