  • HMS Lynx was an Acasta-class destroyer of the Royal Navy. She was built on the River Clyde by London and Glasgow Shipbuilding Company. Lynx was built as yard number 364, and was 267 ft 6 in (81.53 m) in length, 27 ft (8.2 m) in breadth and had a draught of 10 ft 6 in (3.20 m). She was powered by a steam turbine engine which produced 25000 shp. She was commanded from 16 December 1913 by Commander Reginald St Pierre Parry. Lynx was part of the response to the German bombardment of Scarborough on 16 December 1914. At 05:15 she sighted the German destroyer , and summoned her destroyer squadron to investigate. The brief skirmish took place with a force of German destroyers and cruisers, and Lynx was hit several times by German shells. She sustained minor damage to a propeller, and had one man wounded. Lynx left Cromarty with two half-divisions of the Fourth Destroyer Flotilla on 15 December 1914 and she encountered a German destroyer. Lynx was hit by gunfire as she gave chase and her forward magazine was flooded. Her steering gear jammed and the rest of the force made the error of following her, thus ending the pursuit. (en)
