H.M. T.B. 80 was built by Yarrow to a design which had been first crafted for Austria's Flake.

Service

She was reboilered in 1888, after which she had two funnels instead of one.[6]

In 1895, she was one of thirteen torpedo boats of 125 feet or greater length and four smaller ones stationed in Devonport.[7] She participated in the 1895 Naval Manoeuvres under the command of Carlyon Wilfroy Bellairs, a man who would not be favoured with many such responsibilities in the naval service, but was found to be "a source of great trouble ... and was certainly not in a fit condition to be sent to an exercise where speed was the first consideration."[8][9]

Sold to J. E. Thomas on 22 October, 1921.[10]
