HMS Wildfire (Northwood)

HMS Wildfire is the Royal Naval Reserve unit associated with Northwood.



Led by Lieutenant Commander Ian Dorward, HMS Wildfire is set within the UK‘s operational Defence Headquarters at Northwood.

With no salt water within a 50-mile radius, this may seem an unlikely setting for an outpost of the Royal Naval Reserve, however, Reservists from Middlesex, Hertfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire have been flying the White Ensign at Northwood for nearly 65 years.
