HMS Nabob (D77) 1943, was a Bogue-class escort aircraft carrier which served in the Royal Navy during 1943 and 1944. The ship was built in the United States as USS Edisto (CVE-41) (originally AVG-41 then later ACV-41) but did not serve with the United States Navy. Was transferred under Lend-Lease to the United Kingdom on 7 September 1943 prior to her commissioning.
