Unit / Ship / Est.: HMS Alarm 

HMS Alarm was a Acorn-class destroyer of the British Royal Navy. She was built by John Brown and Company at their Clydebank shipyard, being built between 1910 and 1911, completing in March 1911. Alarm had oil-fuelled steam turbine machinery that was designed to give a speed of 27 knots (31 mph; 50 km/h). Armament consisted of two 4-inch (102 mm) guns, two 12-pounder (3-inch, 76 mm) guns and two 21-inch (533 mm) torpedo tubes.

Alarm served through the First World War, both in the North Sea as part of the Grand Fleet and later in the Mediterranean Sea. She was sold for scrap in 1921.
