Torpedo boat HMS Ardent at the breakers yard, Falmouth, Cornwall. 1912

The forward section of the hull of HMS Ardent, a torpedo boat, can be seen on the right hand side of the photograph. She was an Ardent-class torpedo boat destroyer which served with the Royal Navy. She was built by Thornycroft at Church Wharf in Chiswick on the River Thames. She was a Thornycroft 27-knot A class. The boat had a displacement of 265 tons and was 200 feet (61 metres) long. The ship was launched on 16th October 1894 from the yard at Chiswick, following the naming ceremony by Mrs C.T. Cornish, the daughter of the company founder John Isaac Thornycroft. Ardent was attached to the Mediterranean Fleet during the 1890s as tender to the flagship HMS Ramillies. One role of the destroyer was training of stokers of the Fleet in the management of water-tube boilers. She was sold for scrap in 1911. Photographer: Herbert Hughes
