H.M.S. Lively was one of twenty-four "B" class destroyers built for the Royal Navy — a "30 knotter".

Service

Lively paid off at Malta on 30 December, 1904.[8]

The destroyer was docked at Sheerness on 20 August, 1906 to repair damage sustained in a collision.[9]

In mid-1913, she was with the Seventh Destroyer Flotilla, a patrol flotilla.[10]

Based in Great Yarmouth, Lively, under the command of Lieutenant Baillie-Grohman responded to the plight of Halcyon after she'd challenged the raiding German battlecruisers on the morning of 3 November, 1914, and been taken under a heavy fire. Lively laid down a very effective smokescreen to buy Halcyon her escape. Leopard and Success joined in, and jointly the ships reported the Germans by wireless.[11]

Captains
