Completed in late 1902, H.M.S. Hogue was one of six Cressy class cruisers. Obsolete by the time of war, she was infamously one of three cruisers sunk by U.9 in a single hour.

At the outbreak of the Great War, Hogue joined Cruiser Force F of the Channel Fleet before being sent to Queenstown and then Cruiser Force C.[8]

Torpedoes

In 1904, in a competition to investigate how rapidly submerged tubes could be fired four times sequentially, starting with the tube loaded and the bar out, the ship's crew was able to do this in 4 minutes, 57 seconds from her starboard tube and in 6 minutes 20 seconds from port. The best time was achieved by sister Cressy at 50.75 seconds, though 2:30 was more typical.[28]
