1906 HMS Dreadnought was a battleship of the Royal Navy that revolutionised naval power. She was the sixth ship of that name in the Royal Navy - see HMS Dreadnought. She was built at Portsmouth Dockyard

Her entry into service in 1906 represented such a paradigm shift in naval technology that her name came to be associated with an entire generation of battleships, the "Dreadnoughts", as well as the class of ships named after her. The generation of ships she made obsolete became known as "pre-dreadnoughts". [1]

1921 Sold to a "well known firm" of shipbreakers.
