Service history

Myrmidon was launched by Palmers on 26 May 1900, and commissioned in August 1901 to serve on the Mediterranean Station.[1] Commander Cecil Lambert was appointed in command in January 1902, and in September that year she was part of a squadron visiting Nauplia and Souda Bay off Crete for combined manoeuvres.[2] During her later service she was used in both the Mediterranean and home waters.

Myrmidon sank after a collision with the merchant ship Hamborn on 26 March 1917 off Dungeness. Her crew were rescued by HMS Mermaid and SS Tambour, with the loss of one life.
