  Royal Navy, October 1932
She was widely considered the pride of the Royal Navy and was often used for ceremonial duties and showing the flag.
By 1932, the Royal Navy had been forced to accept the idea of parity with the United States Navy, especially concerning capital ships, though the British still maintained an advantage in terms of cruisers and destroyers.

 Naming conventions for destroyers of the Royal Navy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The first Torpedo Boat Destroyer (TBD) in the Royal Navy was HMS Havock of 1893.
From the L class of the 1912 - 1913 programme onwards, ships took the initial letter of their name from the class letter, although large classes such as the M, R and S were allocated more than one initial letter.
The Type 45 destroyers, the Royal Navy’s latest vessels of this type, have resurrected the letter naming convention, taking D names repeating those of the previous Daring class.

 UK Royal Navy cutbacks increase the risk factor   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-03)
Reductions in the size of the UK Royal Navy's (RN's) destroyer/frigate (DD/FF) fleet and nuclear attack submarine (SSN) flotilla mean that the RN will be conducting future operations at "enhanced risk", Chief of Naval Staff and First Sea Lord (CNS/1SL) Adm Sir Alan West has warned.
He also made it clear that he was uncomfortable with the cuts in DD/FF and SSN numbers, but insisted that, given current resource constraints, their sacrifice was necessary to safeguard funding for the Future Aircraft Carrier (CVF) programme as "the centrepiece of UK expeditionary forces for decades to come".
Under future capability plans laid out to parliament on 21 July 2004, the RN will see its DD/FF force reduced from 31 to 25 with the retirement of three Type 42 Batch 1 destroyers and three Type 23 frigates.
