H.M. T.B. 42 was one of 53 first-class torpedo boats of the 125 Footer class.

Service

In 1895, she was one of twenty-three first-class torpedo boats of at least 125 feet in length stationed in Portsmouth along with four smaller ones.[6]

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. 042.[7]

Sold to Maden & McKee on 2 October, 1919.[8]
