Part 4

The "Acasta" class or "K" class (1912-13)

(note: t/rnd = temporary renamed) (temporary names were dropped a "short" time later, it had been intended to renamed all Destroyers with their class names, i.e. "A", "B", "C", etc., but subsequently found to be to complicated to carry out - only the Acasta's were actually assigned new names in October 1913 - best explanation I could ascertain)
