Service

Lookout joined the Third Destroyer Flotilla upon commissioning,[6] serving in Home and Atlantic waters and remained with that formation when it took on the designation of Ninth Destroyer Flotilla around September, 1915, by which time it was noted as being part of the Harwich Force.

In May, 1917, she moved over to join the Fourth Destroyer Flotilla, operating out of Devonport.

In January, 1919, the 4th was disbanded, and Lookout was sent to join a group of destroyers in Reserve at the Nore.[7]

She reduced to a C. & M. Party at the Nore on 26 December, 1919.[8]
