The ship was launched on 26th September 1930 as the 8th Royal Navy warship to carry the name introduced in 1804 and last used by a destroyer sold in 1922. She completed on 9th April 1941 at a cost of 220,342 that excluded items supplied by the Admiralty. In 1938 she was serving in the Home Fleet as the Attendant Destroyer for HM Aircraft Carrier ARK ROYAL. Following a successful WARSHIP WEEK National Savings Campaign in December 1941 this ship was adopted by the civil community of Newton Abbot in the county of Devonshire.
