Service

Condor sailed from Esquimalt, Canada on 2 December, 1901 to sail to Honolulu. She was last seen parting company with Warspite, and her loss was presumed to be related to a severe storm the following day. One of her boats and related wreckage washed ashore on Vancouver Island and along Queen Charlotte Sound as a search by H.M.S. Phaeton and American Revenue Cutters proved fruitless.[6]
