Captain (retired) Pennant Athelwold Iremonger Lloyd, (21 October, 1862 – 15 September, 1916) served in the Royal Navy.

Life & Career

Lloyd was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant in June, 1886.

Lloyd was promoted to the rank of Commander in January, 1899.

Lloyd was appointed Lieutenant in Command of Bat on 14 January, 1900. In the early morning hours of 15 February, 1900, Bat was one of several T.B.Ds. of the Devonport Flotilla damaged, losing the guard of her starboard propeller, when H.M.S. Fairy dragged her anchor in Falmouth Harbour. [1]

Bat would receive more extensive damage during a full power trial on 21 February, when a steam accident in her engine room would require her to return to Plymouth on her port engines only and require her removal from the flotilla. A cascading series of faults originating in a fracture at a bolt hole caused a crack fully two inches wide in a cylinder.[2] She was paid off into the Dockyard Reserve on 8 March and Lloyd and the rest of her crew were turned over to Leven, which replaced Bat in the Instructional Flotilla.[3]

Lloyd was placed on the Retired List at his own request with the rank of Captain on 1 November, 1908.
