H.M. T.B. 59 (1886)
Builder: John I. Thornycroft & Company[1]
Ordered: 30 April/1 May, 1885[2]
Launched: 10 December, 1886[3]
Sold: c. 1913[4]
H.M. T.B. 59 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. 059.[5]

Service

She participated in the Annual Manoeuvres of 1894 as one of three boats in the Holyhead Division of the Blue Side.[6]

In 1895, she was one of twenty-three first-class 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, but I have been unable to find who was her captain.[8][9][10]

In December 1908 she was stranded at Bembridge. Equipment was sent out on 19 December to attempt salvage, but waves prevented the operation. Essex removed the guns, searchlight and other articles and returned them to Spithead while a T.B. kept vigil at the wreck. A second effort was to occur the morning of the 23rd.[11]
