H.M.S. Juno was commissioned in 1897 as one of nine Eclipse class cruisers completed for the Royal Navy.

Service

Then part of the Channel Fleet, Juno started a refit in Portsmouth in May 1908, after completing a Gunlayers' Test.[8]

In mid-August 1912, Juno, Astræa and Charybdis were contributing to congestion in Chatham Dockyard, and were to be moved out to the Medway.[9]

She recommissioned at Chatham on 20 January, 1913 for temporary service as the ship of Captain (D) of the Ninth Destroyer Flotilla while the third class protected cruiser H.M.S. Diamond was in dockyard hands.[10] By mid-year, she was due to be replaced in this role by Sentinel after Manœuvres. She was to be reduced to Reserve Commission at Chatham on 30 June, 1913.[11]

Juno replaced Sutlej as flagship in Cruiser Force E on 17 February, 1915. She would remain flagship until 5 April, 1915, save for a single week when Isis replaced her from 3 March.[12]

Radio

In 1901 while assigned to the Cruiser Squadron, the ship was noted as having or being slated to receive a "1 to 52" W/T set.[13]
