Otway (N51)

Built By: Vickers (Barrow)
Build Group: O Group 1a
Fate: Scrapped at Inverkeithing by Thos W Ward Ltd 24 August 1945

Built for the Royal Australian Navy.

On their delivery voyage to Australia in 1928, Oxley and Otway encountered very severe weather in the Bay of Biscay which badly strained their engine columns, forcing them to remain in Malta for several months whilst British experts repaired the damage.

After useful service in the Royal Australian Navy, the two vessels were transferred to the Royal Navy in 1931 where they served in the Home Flotilla
