HMS Hannibal.   Royal Naval battleship of the Majestic Class.  HMS Hannibal was refitted and converted to burn oil fuel as well as being fitted with fire control in 1906.  Recommissioned in the Channel Fleet Reserve in October 1906 and transferred to Davenport  as part of the Home Fleet in July 1907, remaining there until 1914. During this time struck a submerged reef off the Devonshire coast in August 1909 and collided with TB105 in October that same year.  She was refitted and served as guard ship of the Humber from 1914 and later went to Scapa Flow.  She was then converted to a troop ship, being disarmed at Dalmuir to provide 12in turrets for Prince Eugene and Sir John Moore, moving to the Mediterranean in September 1915.  From 1916 - 1919 HMS Hannibal served in the East Indies and in Egypt, and was sold in January 1920.

Armament: four 12 inch guns, twelve 6 inch guns, sixteen 12 pdr guns, twelve 3 pdr guns, 2 maxims, two 2pdr boat guns and five torpedo tubes.   Displacement: 14,900 tons.   Speed: 16.5 knots.   Complement: 757.

HMS Hannibal - Name History

The tenth “HANNIBAL” is a 16-gun twin-screw battleship, launched at Pembroke in 1896.  She is of 14,900 tons, 12,000 horse- power, and 17.5 knots speed.  Her length, beam, and draught were 390ft., 75ft., and 27ft.   On the night of October 17th, 1993, the “Hannibal,” while commanded by Captain A.G. Tate, came into collision with her sister ship “Prince George,” commanded by Captain F.L. Campbell.  The channel fleet, at the time under Admiral Lord Charles Beresford with his flag in “Majestic,” was off Cape Finisterre doing tatics without lights.  The actual hole made in the “Prince George” by the “Hannibal’s” ram was 24ft. 8 in. in height and about 6 ½ ft. wide.  The injury was so effectually repaired on the spot that the Admiral was able to take her to Ferrol for more durable repairs, whence she returned to England under her own steam.
