HMS Ferret is a training unit of the Royal Naval Reserve based at the Defence Intelligence and Security Centre, Chicksands in Bedfordshire.



HMS Ferret was initially established at Templer Barracks, Ashford, Kent, an Intelligence Corps training establishment, as a regional headquarters of the Royal Naval Reserve. It was commissioned on 9 October 1982.

Templer Barracks closed in 1997, the land being required for construction of railway works for the highspeed Eurostar connection through the newly completed Channel Tunnel. Training delivery and the Headquarters Int Corps moved to Chicksands between 1995 and 1997, with HMS Ferret relocating at the same time.
