HMS Cromer visited Dundee on 6-9 November 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 KNM Vidar, Norwegian minesweeper KNM Måløy, Dutch minehunter M 860 Hr.Ms. Schiedam, Belgian minehunter Crocus, Type 23 frigate HMS Montrose and German minesweeper 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".
