Reigate MP Mr Blunt not only spoke out against Trident but joined 19 Labour rebels who voted against renewal of the submarine-based system.
The motion was moved by the SNP, Plaid Cymru and Green MP Caroline Lucas.
Mr Blunt, the only Tory supporting the motion, said he was wearing the regimental tie of the Light Dragoons.
He told MPs that when he worked as a special adviser at the Ministry of Defence, he found it impossible to find a scenario in which Britain would decide to use nuclear weapons.
Trident renewal would cost about £100 billion.
“As a nation, given the other potential demands on our defence budget, we can no longer justify the expense,” he added.
Britain would be much better equipped to defend its interests if it is a wealthy, successful trading nation which “looks out to the entire world.”
Labour MPs voting against Trident renewal were: ‘
Diane Abbott, Ronnie Campbell, Katy Clark, Michael Connarty, Jeremy Corbyn, Ian Davidson, Paul Flynn, Roger Godsiff, Kelvin Hopkins, David Lammy, Mark Lazarowicz, John McDonnell, Grahame Morris, Fiona O’Donnell, Sandra Osborne, Dennis Skinner, Andrew Smith, Graham Stringer and Joan Walley.
