H.M. T.B. 21 was one of thirty-six first-class torpedo boats of the Cricket class.

Service

In March, 1910, T.B. 21 was in the Third Destroyer Flotilla, which was then part of the Third Division, Home Fleet.[7]

By mid-1914, she was with the Seventh Destroyer Flotilla, a Patrol Flotilla in Home and Atlantic Waters. Around February, 1915, she moved to join the Portsmouth Local Defence Flotilla.[8]

In December, 1916, she left the local defence flotilla to become one of four T.Bs. under command of the Commander-in-Chief, Portsmouth alongside the Fourth Destroyer Flotilla (then ten destroyers) and the Portsmouth Escort Flotilla (then twelve destroyers and four patrol boats). She would remain so disposed through the end of the war.

In December, 1918 she moved to become one of eight torpedo boats in reserve, first in Portsmouth, then in Devonport.[9] By late April, she is nowhere to be found. She was sold on 17 October, 1920 and resold in August, 1924.[10]
