H.M.S. Erne was one of 36 destroyers of the "River" class.

Service

In February 1908 Erne was one of seven "Rivers" of the Nore Destroyer Flotilla taken into Sheerness Dockyard for refitting, during which time three 12-pdr guns were mounted in lieu of five 6-pdrs, which were deemed too light to be useful.[7]

Erne was paid off into Dockyard hands at Sheerness for a refit after being relieved by Afridi on 18 September, 1909, slated to be re-commissioned on 23 October for service with the Second Destroyer Flotilla.[8]

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