Modified W-Class Fleet Destroyer ordered from Swan Hunter of Wallsend, Newcastle under the 1918-19 Programme (13th Order) in January 1918.The ship was laid down in June 1918 and was launched as the first RN warship to carry the name en 11th September 1919. After launch work was suspended and she was towed to HM Dockyard, Chatham. Build was completed in July 1924 when she entered service. Due to economic reasons this ship had limited operational† use. She was held in Reserve in 1939. She commissioned for the Royal Review of Reserve Fleet ships in August and remained in service. During WW2 following a successful WARSHIP WEEK National Savings campaign in 1942 this destroyer was adopted by the civil community of Cheltenham, Gloucestershire. Further details about, this Class of destroyer are available in V&W CLASS DESTROYERS 1917-45 by A Preston).
