H.M.S. Antrim (1903)
Pendant Number: 9 (1914)
7 (Jan 1918)
N.58 (Apr 1918)[1]
Builder: John Brown & Company[2]
Ordered: 1901-02 Programme[3]
Laid down: 27 Aug, 1902[4]
Launched: 8 Oct, 1903[5]
Commissioned: 23 Jun, 1905[6]

Fate: to Hughes Bolckow, Derwenthaugh[8]

Service

Re-commissioned at Chatham on 20 June, 1907.[9]

She was re-commissioned at Chatham on 3 May, 1910.[10]

Antrim recommissioned at Chatham on 5 March 1912, and completed to full complement on 3 December.[11]

In 1915, she was serving as flagship of Third Cruiser Squadron.[12]

She was recommissioned at Chatham on 3 March, 1920 under Captain Allen.[13]

Radio

Antrim received one of the first Service Gear Mark II sets and tested it with that at Vernon in September 1908. The encouraging result was reliable communication over 1000 miles by night and 500 by day.[14]

In mid-1913, it was decided to purchase a Type 9 Cruiser Auxiliary set for her.[15]

Alterations

In mid-1913 it was approved that these ships receive a Mark III Dumaresq, Pattern 760. Having been supplied with the Mark III variant, each was to surrender a Mark I instrument previously allotted. For some reason, her sisters are not so mentioned.[16]

In late July 1914, the ship received one of five Waymouth-Cooke Rangefinders purchased for evaluation, possibly of a new model.[17]

In October 1914, the ship was to be given a single Pattern 1582 Electric Radiator to warm her secretary's office, the stove of which could not be used for heating.[18]
