The British 9th Battle Squadron was a short-lived Royal Navy squadron consisting of battleships serving in the Grand Fleet.

August 1914

In August 1914, the 9th Battle Squadron was formed at Grimsby on 27 July 1914, and comprised a number of the older Majestic-class pre-dreadnought battleships. These included:

  • HMS Hannibal
  • HMS Magnificent
  • HMS Mars
  • HMS Victorious
  • Due to the age and obsolescence, on 7 August 1914 the 9th Battle Squadron was dissolved and the ships were allocated to guard ship duty and disarmed shortly after.
