H.M.S. Arrogant was one of four Arrogant class cruisers completed between 1898 and 1900. She served as a depot ship for submarines during the Great War.

Service

She recommissioned at Portsmouth on 1 July 1911[7] as she completed conversion to a depot ship.[8]

In mid-1913, she was servicing Fourth Submarine Flotilla in Portsmouth.[9]

She joined the Fourth Submarine Flotilla at Dover from in September, 1914 and served there until 1916. From September, 1916, she served the Fifth Submarine Flotilla and acted as flagship until the flotilla was disbanded in February, 1918. Arrogant was thereafter attached directly to the Dover Patrol.

Torpedoes

In 1904, in a competition to investigate how rapidly submerged tubes could be fired four times sequentially, starting with the tube loaded and the bar out, the ship's crew was able to do this in 2 minute, 40 seconds. The best time was achieved by Cressy at 50.75 seconds, though 2:30 was more typical.[57]
