H.M. T.B. 22 (1885)
Builder: Thornycroft[1]
Ordered: 19 January, 1884[2]
Launched: 5 May, 1885[3]
Sold: 1907[4]
H.M. T.B. 22 was one of four first-class torpedo boats of the 113 Footer class.

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. 022.[5]

Construction

The design of T.B. 21 and T.B. 22 was based on the earlier Childers built for the Victorian Navy of Australia.[6]

Service

During the crisis following the Panjdeh Incident in 1885, T.B. 22 was put into commission as part of Admiral Phipps Hornby's Particular Service Squadron on 28 April, and was later involved in the year's Annual Manoeuvres at Berehaven.[7]

T.B. 21 was recommissioned on 18 March, 1886 for transfer to the Mediterranean with T.B. 22.[8] She departed Plymouth on 4 April for the Mediterranean.[9][10] She was paid off on 22 June, 1886.[11][Inference]

In 1895, she was one of ten first-class torpedo boats stationed at Malta.[12] She remained there until she was sold locally in 1907.[13]
