H.M. T.B. 47 (1886)
Builder: John I. Thornycroft & Company[1]
Ordered: 30 April/1 May, 1885[2]
Launched: 28 June, 1886[3]
Sold: 1908[4]
H.M. T.B. 47 was one of 53 first-class torpedo boats of the 125 Footer class.

Service

On 12 May 1887, T.B. 47 suffered a burst pipe in the boiler room while steaming at high speed between Portland and Torquay, searing five artificers and stokers – three of them critically (two of these died). She was towed back to Devonport by Rattlesnake in the evening.[5]

In 1895, she was one of eleven first-class torpedo boats stationed in Gibraltar.[6]

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. 047.[7]
