Proserpina (Destroyer, 1897-1931)

Proserpina, a 400-ton Audaz class torpedo boat destroyer, was built in Scotland in 1897. She was a unit of Admiral Camara's abortive Philippines relief expedition during the Spanish-American War. After over three decades of service, Proserpina was scrapped in 1931.

This page features an 1898 view of Proserpina.
