HMS Attentive went into reserve fleet at the Nore on completion in June 1906. In march 1907 she was commissioned at Chatham for the Nore division of the Home Fleet. On the afternoon of the 27th April 1908 , the eastern destroyer Flotilla, consisting of 15 vessels, in company with the scouts HMS Adventure and HMS Attentive, left Harwich for the purpose of firing exercise and night ,maneuvers. a little after midnight all the vessels having their lights masked, HMS Gala one of the destroyers came into collision with HMS Attentive being struck by the latter's ram in the after part of the engine room and cut in two. Fortunately in this case all the crew were saved, except Engineer Lieutenant F A Fletcher, who was drowned. HMS Attentive afterwards came into collision with another of the destroyers HMS Ribble which received damage sufficiently serious to oblige her to put back to sheerness. The fore part of HMS Gala sunk almost immediately, but the after part, with all the crew clinging to it remained afloat for some time, sinking while an attempt was being made to tow it into shallow water. HMS Attentive was re commissioned at Chatham in July 1909 and became leader for the 3rd Destroyer Flotilla, transferring in 1910 to the 2nd Destroyer flotilla recommissioned at Devonport in October 1911 and went into refit in August 1912, after which she joined the 3rd Light Cruiser squadron for the annual maneuvers in 1913.
