HMS Kent

HMS Kent was a Monmouth-class armoured cruiser of 9,800 tons displacement, of the British Royal Navy. Launched on 6 March 1901, with her heaviest gun being 6-inch quick-firer. She served on the China Station between 1906 and 1913.

On the outbreak of the First World War she was sent to the Falkland Islands where she participated in the Battle of the Falkland Islands and sank SMS Nurnberg[?]. She returned to Britain in May 1915, and was sent to Vladivostok in January 1919 to support American and Japanese forces in action against the Bolshevik Red Army.

She was broken up in June 1920.
