HMS Cadmus


The Ship

Sold 1921

Like the larger Frigate the Sloop did not initially survive the transition to steel and steam. At the turn of the 19th century the RN had a few sail and screw powered sloops such as the Cadmus with 6 x 4" guns. These were built in 1901, most survived until WW1 where they were pressed into the roles of minesweepers and coastal escorts.
