H.M. T.B. 73 (1885)
Builder: Yarrow[1]
Ordered: 30/31 March, 1885[2]
Launched: 1885[3]
Completed: 1886[4]
Sold: 5 July, 1923[5]
H.M. T.B. 73 was one of 53 first-class torpedo boats of the 125 Footer class.

Service

In 1895, she was one of eight large torpedo boats of at least 125 feet length and two smaller ones stationed in Chatham.[6]

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. 073.[7]

T.B. 073 was the last of the 125 footers to be sold, surviving until 5 July, 1923 when she was sold to L. Basso of Weymouth. Her sister T.B. 071 had been sold in February of that year to B. Newton.[8]
