Service

In mid-1904, a boatswain (T) J. McCarthy impressed his commander with a thorough report on German torpedo boats based on his observations during a visit to Kiel in June.[8] It conveyed a sense of caution, in that the German vessels appeared quite capable and efficient.

In mid-1913, Cherwell was in the Ninth Destroyer Flotilla — a patrol flotilla.[9]
