Vessel history
Torpedo Boat Destroyer, Hanna, Donald and Wilson 27-knotter.
She and Zephyr first had locomotive boilers with one funnel as the Admiralty would not accept boilers from HD&W as proposed. They could not reach their contracted speed, so the Admiralty agreed to change them to Reed Boilers, with four funnels. The changes also produced problems with extra weight and they never reached their design speed and were not a success.
