Haze Gray Mystery Picture #172 Answer


Can You Identify This Ship?

This is the torpedo boat destroyer HMS Success.

Success was completed in 1902, in an experimental and rapidly-evolving era when there were few standardized designs; boats varied from year to year and from one builder to another. Success was the sole Doxford-built "30 knotter" of the 1899 orders. She was wrecked in 1914.
