HMS Syren was one of two Myrmidon-class destroyers which served with the Royal Navy. She was launched by Palmers in 1900, served in home waters and was sold off, after the First World War, in 1920.

Service history

HMS Syren was commissioned at Portsmouth on 10 April 1902 by Lieutenant and Commander the Hon. Herbert Meade and the crew of the destroyer Teazer, taking the place of Teazer in the instructional flotilla. Less than a month later, she had one of her funnels damaged in a collision with the service yacht Hawk off Portsmouth. She was quickly repaired at Devonport, and re-joined the flotilla in mid-June.
