The 7th ship to bear the name, the Assault Ship HMS FEARLESS was  commissioned in 1965 as the first of two assault ships. She combined, in one hull, a tank landing ship, a troop transport and an amphibious command ship. Over four decades she proved effective in all these roles as well as acting as a floating 10 Downing Street (For Prime Minister Harold Wilson's talks with Ian Smith of Southern Rhodesia), an embassy, exhibition hall and co-ordinating centre of civil aid projects.

Throughout her life she was intimately involved in Britain's changing foreign policies. Operationally, she landed a force into Saudi Arabia, the 'tanks' into Northern Ireland, was a central player during the Falklands campaign, helped Britain withdraw from Africa and the Middle East; she ended her life playing a key role in the initial Afghanistan operations.
