H.M.S. Seal (1897)
Pendant Number: D.77 (1914)

D.75 (Jan 1918)[1]
Builder: Laird[2]
Ordered: 1895-96 Programme[3]
Laid down: 17 Jun, 1896[4]
Launched: 6 Mar, 1897[5]
Commissioned: May, 1898[6]

H.M.S. Seal was one of twenty-four "B" class destroyers built for the Royal Navy — a "30 knotter".

Service

On 11 February, 1899 while returning under the command of Lt. Herbert John Temple Marshall with other T.B.Ds. of the flotilla to Devonport after a cruise in the Channel, Ferret's propeller entangled the painter of a boat, smashing the boat and throwing the three occupants into the drink. The men were rescued with some difficulty by the Seal under the command of John Campbell Watson. As this occurred, the two destroyers came together, damaging Seal's stern plates and Ferret's torpedo tubes. The ships were taken into Devonport Dockyard to have their damage repaired.[8]

Seal arrived at Malta on 2 February 1904 in company with six other destroyers.[9]

In mid-1913, she was operating with Ninth Destroyer Flotilla — a patrol flotilla.[10]
