H.M.S. Restless was one of 62 destroyers of the "R" class.

Service

Restless was assigned to the Grand Fleet's Fifteenth Destroyer Flotilla in October 1916, as it was just reaching a useful strength.[8] She was loaned to the Second Destroyer Flotilla for August through October, 1917 but returned to the Fifteenth Destroyer Flotilla.

On 26 January, 1918, Michael Kavanagh Horsley Kennedy grounded her at Ardrossan and was subjected to a Court of Enquiry whose conclusions are illegible in his service record.[9]

In February, 1919 Restless moved to the Fourth Destroyer Flotilla, one of the seven main flotillas of the post-war fleet.

She re-commissioned with reduced complement on 30 October, 1919.[10]

Re-commissioned on 8 March, 1922.[11]
