H.M. T.B. 41 was one of fifty-three first-class torpedo boats of the 125 Footer class.

Service

On 13 June 1892, a pinnace with fourteen men from Vernon charged with searching for a Brennan Torpedo lost during mobilization exercises was filled with water in a rough sea. One man drowned, and the others were rescued by T.B. 41.[6]

In 1895, T.B. 41 was one of twenty-three torpedo boats of at least 125 feet in length stationed in Portsmouth along with four smaller ones.[7]

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. 041.[8]
