Grouping by Programme Year[edit]

The separation into Group 1 and Group 2 does not match the actual orders, which were as follows:

The 1940 Programme comprised 27 River class frigates built in the UK. These were ordered between February and July 1941, and comprised - Balinderry, Bann, Chelmer, Dart, Derg, Ettrick, Exe, Itchen, Jed, Kale, Lagan, Mourne, Moyola, Ness, Nith, Ribble (i), Rother, Spey, Strule, Swale, Tay, Test, Teviot, Trent, Tweed, Waveney and Wear.

The 1941 Programme comprised 19 River class frigates built in the UK. These were ordered between September 1941 and May 1942, and comprised - Aire, Braid, Cam, Deveron, Dovey, Fal, Frome, Helford, Helmsdale, Meon, Nene, Plym, Tavy, Tees, Torridge, Towy, Usk, Windrush and Wye. In addition 8 ships were built in Canada for the Royal Navy - Barle, Cuckmere, Evenlode, Findhorn, Inver, Lossie, Parret and Shiel.

The 1942 Programme comprised 11 River class frigates built in the UK. These were ordered between July and December 1942, and comprised - Annan, Avon, Awe, Duddon (renamed Ribble (ii)), Halladale, Lochy, Monnow, Nadder, Odzani, Taff and Teme.

Split the list off[edit]

I'd like to suggest that the list of ships in the class be split off into a separate List of River class frigates. At the moment, this article is quite large, but there is little information of the class as a whole because the article is dominated by data on individual ships. Splitting the list off would make the article more manageable, and likely prompt the addition and development of class-overview content. -- saberwyn 01:00, 24 January 2012 (UTC)

I agree, it's a bit confusing as it is. Separate sections on the various builds would be useful, with summary lists of the ships in each group (as Rif has done, above). Then we could spread the infoboxes on the British, Canadian and Australian builds out a bit. Xyl 54 (talk) 23:35, 15 February 2012 (UTC)
Is anyone going to carry out the split? Op47 (talk) 16:13, 20 April 2012 (UTC)
Done now. -- saberwyn 02:45, 22 April 2012 (UTC)
