Builder: John I. Thornycroft & Company[1]
Ordered: 30/31 March, 1885[2]

H.M. T.B. 29 was one of 53 first-class torpedo boats of the 125 Footer class.

Service

In 1895, she was one of four first-class torpedo boats stationed at the Cape of Good Hope.[5]

Around 1906-1907, with the issuance of torpedo boat numbers to the first of the Cricket class torpedo boats, the existing Torpedo Boats numbered 25 to 79 had a "0" prepended to their number. This vessel, therefore, became T.B. 029.[6]

T.B. 029 was sold for scrapping in 1919 at Capetown.[7]
