HMS Consort was a C-class destroyer of the Royal Navy, launched on 19 October 1944 and commissioned on 19 March 1946.

Whilst berthed at Nanking, Consort suffered 49 casualties in 1949 after being attacked by the Chinese. She suffered further loss during the Yangtze Incident in an attempt to tow the sloop Amethyst from a mudbank, taking 56 direct hits, and causing casualties of 23 wounded and a further ten dead.
