Builder: John I. Thornycroft & Company[1]
Ordered: 30 April/1 May, 1885[2]

H.M. T.B. 60 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. 060.[5]

Service

She participated in the Annual Manoeuvres of 1894 as leader of the 3-boat strong Holyhead Division of the Blue Side.[6]

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

She was commissioned on 8 July 1896 in order to participate in the Annual Manoeuvres of 1896.

At some point after this, she was transferred to the Cape of Good Hope.[8] She was finally sold at Capetown on 1 July, 1919.[9]
