Construction & Service

In November 1865, the steam storeship H.M.S. Fox loaded four boilers, condensers and related machinery at Woolwich to convey to Pembroke for installation in Vestal.[4]

Vestal vacated the #3 dock in Keyham Steamyard so it could be taken up by the steam screwship Lord Clyde.[5]
