H.M.S. Snapper (1895)
Builder: Earle's Shipbuilding[1]
Ordered: 1893-94[2]
Laid down: 2 Apr, 1894[3]
Launched: 30 Jan, 1895[4]
Commissioned: 14 Jan, 1896[5]

H.M.S. Snapper was one of thirty-six 27 Knotters, early Torpedo Boat Destroyers built for the Royal Navy in the 1890s.

Like most of the 27 knotters, her useful life ran its course before the Great War.

Service

Snapper was commissioned at Chatham in late February 1901 to replace Avon in the Medway Instructional Flotilla.[7]

Snapper arrived at Sheerness with six other destroyers from the North Sea on 1 October, 1901.[8]

Snapper was one of seventeen destroyers of the Reserve Division which left Sheerness on 1 July, 1905 for Spithead under the overall command of Commander R. G. Gregory in H.M.S. Spitfire.[9]

She and sixteen other destroyers of the Reserve Division arrived at Sheerness on 13 July 1905 and proceeded to Chatham.[10]
