H.M. T.B. 43 was one of 53 first-class torpedo boats of the 125 Footer class.

Service

In 1895, she was one of ten first-class torpedo boats stationed in Malta.[6]

In December 1905, she was in reserve at Gibraltar.[7]

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. 043.[8]

Sold at Malta on 18 December, 1919.[9]
