HMS Mohawk

The Ship

Mined and severely damaged. 1915

The sixth HMS MOHAWK was built by Whites in 1907 as a Torpedo Boat Destroyer of 865 tons and was armed with 5 x 12 pounders and 2 18 inch torpedo tubes. She had a maximum speed of 34 knots. In 1914 she was attached to the Sixth Destroyer Flotilla and was a tender to HMS ATTENTIVE.

Shortly after this she was commanded by Commander E R G R EVANS, CB, (Evans of the Broke) and was employed on the Dover Patrol until she was severely damaged as the result of striking one of the first German mines laid in the area.
