Service

Wireless Antennae for 1913[8]

She recommissioned at Chatham on 25 April, 1913 to serve in the Third Fleet.[9]

In the 1913 Manœuvres, as in the prior year, she bore the Umpire-in-Chief, and employed radio sets in adjoining offices to intercept communications of both Red and Blue fleets. Both fleets were intercepted by ordinary "C" Tune Gear receivers, with a Service Gear Mark I* set for transmitting, if needed, on "S" wave to Blue with ad hoc arrangements for sending to Reds. Both fleets could be monitored on "X" wave, and emergency and destroyer waves, by a shared, third receiver.

In late 1917, she started conversion to a minelayer in Hong Kong, but the war ended before the work was completed.

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.[10]
