  • HMS Watchman was a W-class destroyer of the British Royal Navy that saw service in the final months of World War I, in the Russian Civil War, and in World War II. Construction and commissioning Watchman was ordered on 9 December 1916  and was laid down by John Brown & Company at Clyde bank, Scotland on 17 January 1917. Launched on 2 December 1917, she was completed on 26 January 1918 and commissioned the same day. She was assigned the pennant number G23 in January 1918, it was changed to G09 in April 1918, and to D26 during the interwar period.
  • Service history World War II Upon completion, Watchman was assigned to the Grand Fleet, based at Scala Flow in the Orkney Islands, in which she served for the rest of World War I.
  • When the United Kingdom entered World War II in early September 1939, Watchman was assigned to contraband control duty with the 17th Destroyer Flotilla at Gibraltar. With the start of the war, she began convoy defense and patrol duties from Gibraltar, which she continued into 1940.
  • In January 1944, Watchman transferred to the Home Fleet to support and defend Arctic convoys during their voyage between the United Kingdom and the Soviet Union.
  • Decommissioning and disposal Watchman was placed on the disposal list in June 1945. She was sold on 23 July 1945 to Tho's. W. Ward for scrapping and by August 1945 was awaiting demolition. After the surrender of Japan on 15 August 1945, she was towed to Innervating, Scotland, for scrapping.
