H.M.S. Plucky (1870)
Builder: Portsmouth Royal Dockyard[Citation needed]
Launched: 13 Jul, 1870[1]
Sold: 1928[2]

H.M.S. Plucky (H.M.S. Banterer after June, 1915) was a prototype flatiron gunboat built for the Royal Navy.

Construction & Service

Plucky was the first iron vessel built at Portsmouth Royal Dockyard.[3] She was a minor improvement on the preceding prototype, Staunch, in that she was thirteen tons heavier, which permitted her to have finer ends. Still, the design was notably stubby.[4]

The three Devonport-based gunboats Scourge, Plucky and Bulldog were among the ships invited to participate in the Queen's naval Jubilee at Portsmouth in 1887.[5]

Plucky was renamed H.M.S. Banterer in June, 1915. A new destroyer took the name Plucky in mid-1916.

Banterer paid off at Devonport 13 December 1918.[6]
