Hormuz was a naval command and base of the British Royal Navy. At various times it encompassed a shore base, naval formations and other ships not attached to other formations. Hormuz is the name of the port town, located on the island of Jarūn, Iran in the Persian Gulf, which gives its name to the homonymous Strait of Hormuz defined, further south, by the coasts of Oman
