H.M.S. Zebra was one of forty-two "A" class destroyers built for the Royal Navy — a "27 knotter".

Service

An inspection of Zebra in 1906 by the Rear Admiral found her in good condition, but the starboard head was being used as a paint shop against orders.[7]

Zebra entered Sheerness Dockyard for refitting on 27 October, 1906.[8]

By March 1913 she was at Chatham listed as "To be Sold".[9] By April 1914 she was missing from the Navy List entirely.
