H.M.S. Nubian was one of 12 destroyers of the "Tribal" class.

Service

In mid-1913, she was with the Fourth Destroyer Flotilla.[7]

In July, 1914, work to somehow alter the ship's chart table was deferred.[8]

She was torpedoed by one of six German destroyers she challenged in the night, demolishing her bow.[9] This damage would pair well with damage to the stern of Zulu, which would permit the two hulks to be fashioned into the H.M.S. Zubian.

Radio

In 1909, she became one of forty-three destroyers so far fitted with Destroyer Sets.[10]

Captains
