The First Destroyer Flotilla was a formation of destroyers of the Royal Navy.

History

In August, 1907, the First and Second Destroyer Flotilla transferred from the Home Fleet to the Channel Fleet.[1]

Between April and October, 1910 until 1911, it included the Beagle class destroyers.[2][3]

18 March, 1910

Operating as part of the First Division, Home Fleet and comprised of Swift, the Tribals, and several Rivers.[4].

From 1912 through much of 1916, it was also comprised of twenty Acheron class destroyers armed with 21-in Mark II torpedoes.[6][7][8][9] Apparently, Blonde was flagship and Tyne a depot ship during that time.[10][11]

February, 1913

Part of the First Fleet, the Flotilla was now comprised of twenty Acherons under scout cruiser Blonde with depot ship Venus.[12]

This was very likely the composition at the outbreak of war, when it was less specifically described in other sources.[18][19]

August, 1914

On 13 August, the First and Third Destroyer Flotillas were made part of Rear-Admiral Arthur Henry Christian's new Southern Force. The two flotillas operated out of Harwich under Commodore Tyrwhitt in operations to protect the Belgian coast.[20]

September, 1914

The First Flotilla is still shown as before. The First Fleet's flotilla flagship is now light cruiser Arethusa.[21]

During the month, it was decided that Faulknor should join as the half-flotilla leader and be fitted with a Mark II W/T set, longer mast, No. 2 set of flags and two additional signal ratings,[22] a change that would limit this roster to applying for just September.

October, 1914

Faulknor has joined as the second flagship.[23]

On 24 November 1914, while centred in Harwich, the leader and half-flotilla leader were changed to Galatea and Meteor.[24]

December, 1914

The flagships have changed according to the command of 24 November. Also, three newly-completed "M" class destroyers have joined the formerly all-Acheron flotilla, while they await a more permanent posting.[25]

Minos, Manly and Mastiff have been moved to the Third Destroyer Flotilla, pending a move to the still-forming Tenth Destroyer Flotilla. Galatea has also left for a temporary posting in the Second Destroyer Flotilla, replaced by Fearless who is returning from the same. The First Flotilla has also been placed under the command of Vice-Admiral commanding the Third Battle Squadron.[26]

Battle of Dogger Bank

Fourteen Acheron class destroyers were attached to the Flotilla under light cruiser Aurora in the Battle of Dogger Bank on 24 January. One of these, Attack took Beatty from Lion when the battlecruiser was disabled.[27]

The January roster would last until February or March.

February, 1915

Early in the month, the flotilla with Woolwich transferred from Harwich to South Queensferry to assist the Battle Cruiser Squadron based there.[28]

March, 1915

The flotilla is now under the command of Commander-in-Chief Home Fleets, the roster remaining as in January.[29]

Battle of Jutland

Main article: First D.F. (Royal Navy) at the Battle of Jutland

Nine destroyers led by torpedo cruiser Fearless screened the Fifth Battle Squadron on its disengaged side during the Run to the South and then served the same duty for the First Battle Cruiser Squadron. Attack and Defender sustained hits from 11-in shells, but kept in the action.[32]

It was organised as follows:[33][34]

At the same time, Phoenix remained in harbour and the flotilla leader Botha and destroyers Jackal, Archer, Tigress and Phoenix were in dockyard hands.[35]

June, 1916

Beaver, Defender, Druid, Ferret, Forester, Hind, Hornet and Sandfly have been detached to screen the Third Battle Squadron, relieving the Third Cruiser Squadron of this duty, as it is presumably now needed to make good cruiser loses of those screening the Battle Fleet at Jutland. Fearless is noted as being a temporary member.[36]

November, 1916

The Flotilla is no longer screening the Grand Fleet, and Champion has moved to the Thirteenth Destroyer Flotilla, but those destroyers (now numbering seven – Defender is curiously not listed, though she'd been there in October and she'd reappear in December) operating with the Third Battle Squadron now are labelled as the First Destroyer Flotilla, tendered to Dido. Acheron, Archer, Ariel, Attack, Goshawk, Hydra and Lizard have been moved to the Second Destroyer Flotilla, under orders of the Commander-in-Chief of Devonport. Tigress seems to be with an unnamed assortment of ten Acorn class destroyers led by second class protected cruiser H.M.S. Eclipse.[42]

The Flotilla is no more, with most its ships "temporarily" at various home ports: Arun, Medina, Nonpareil, Observer, Offa, Orestes and Plucky at Portsmouth, Cherwell, Liffey, Rother, Swale and Teviot at the Nore, and Ettrick and Ure sent to the Seventh Destroyer Flotilla at the Humber.[64]

March, 1919

The Flotilla is reborn as one of seven flotillas of the post-war Grand Fleet, equipped with sixteen modern destroyers, two leaders and a depot ship.

Wallace has come from Devonport and bears the First's Captain (D). Valorous has come in as second-in-command from the Eleventh Destroyer Flotilla, bringing with her Vancouver, Vanessa, Vanity (which is paid off and would remain so until May), Versatile, Viscount Vivacious, Vortigern, Voyager, Walker, Watchman and Wryneck.

Waterhen has come from the Twelfth Destroyer Flotilla and Velox, Warwick and Whirlwind from the Fourteenth Destroyer Flotilla, bringing with them their depot ship, Greenwich.[65][66]
