H.M.S. Colne was one of 36 destroyers of the "River" class.

Service

On 11 April, 1907, she collided with H.M.S. Falcon in the English Channel. The two damaged vessels returned to Dover Pier.[8]

In 1909, Colne became one of forty-three destroyers so far fitted with Destroyer Sets.[9]

On 1 July 1913, she left Malta for Corfu with eight other destroyers under the lead of the torpedo gunboat Hussar.[10] On 4 July, the destroyers left Corfu for Platea, sans Hussar.[11]

In mid-1913, she was serving in the Mediterranean.[12]

Under the command of Claude Seymour, on 8 March, 1915, Colne was among several destroyers that went to the aid of the mined battleship Ocean, seeing Chelmer rescue 500 men.[13]
