Radio

In mid-1913, it was decided to purchase a Type 9 Cruiser Auxiliary set for her.[10]

Alterations

In October 1914, the ship was to be given eleven Pattern 1582 Electric Radiators to warm cabins whose stoves could not be used for heating them.[13]

An order for a design for a director system for Cochrane was issued 22 February, 1915, and an order for its manufacture given 26 August, 1916. Priorities for director fittings were such that it was only made available in November 1918 and never actually installed.[14]
