The Warrior was built in 1912 as a naval pinnace and she is a handsome, roomy vessel - a real ship in miniature, so unlike a modern pleasure yacht. Her hull is constructed durably in double-diagonal teak on oak. Her own early records, including her Dunkirk log, were destroyed when an incendiary bomb struck her while she lay, still under naval command, on the river Thames at Greenwich, after Dunkirk.

At that time Warrior served as a coastal defence vessel and was used by Commander C.A. Lund to instruct naval officers in navigation and seamanship at H.M.S King Alfred in 1942.
