HMAS TASMANIA
Tasmania was one of 55 “S” class destroyers built for the British Admiralty under the Emergency Shipbuilding Program of World War I. She commissioned into the Royal Navy (RN) as HMS Tasmania in January 1919. She was not long in commission, however, when she and her sister ships, Stalwart, Success, Swordsman, and Tattoo, along with the flotilla leader, Anzac, were gifted to the Royal Australian Navy (RAN) as replacements for the RAN’s obsolete River class destroyers.
