H.M. T.B. 95 was one of ten first-class torpedo boats of the 140 Footer class.

Service

In 1895, she was one of two of her class to be stationed in Portsmouth, along with twenty other T.B.s of at least 125 foot length and four smaller vessels. She also was one of two in her class to participate in that year's manœuvres.[4] On the conclusion of those manoeuvres had to remain in Pembroke along with T.B. 72 and "it was anticipated that quite three weeks would elapse before they would be ready to proceed."[5]

She was commissioned on 8 July 1896 in order to participate in the Annual Manoeuvres of 1896, but I have been unable to find who was her captain.[6][7][8]
