H.M.S. Miranda was one of one hundred and three destroyers of the "M" class built for the Royal Navy during the Great War.

Service

In September 1914, Miranda was selected as an "M class T.B.D." to join Third Destroyer Flotilla as the half-flotilla leader and be fitted with a Mark II W/T set, longer mast, No. 2 set of flags and two additional signal ratings.[7][8]

At the Battle of Dogger Bank on 24 January 1915, Miranda fired a torpedo at 11:00am from 5,500 yards with 135R and 20 knot target, securing (it was believed and reported) a hit under the bridge of its target.[9]

Paid off 19 November, 1919.[10]
