H.M. T.B. 72 (1885)
Builder: Yarrow[1]
Launched: 1885[2]
Broken up: 1914[3]
H.M. T.B. 72 was one of 53 first-class torpedo boats of the 125 Footer class.

Around 1906-1907, with the issuance of torpedo boat numbers to the first of the Cricket class torpedo boats, the existing Torpedo Boats numbered 25 to 79 had a "0" prepended to their number. This vessel, therefore, became T.B. 072.[4]

Service

In 1895, she was one of eight large T.B.s of at least 125 feet length and two smaller ones stationed in Chatham.[5]
