1915 HMS Lord Clive was the lead ship of the British Lord Clive-class monitors. Her main guns were taken from the obsolete pre-Dreadnought battleship Majestic. She spent World War I in the English Channel bombarding German positions along the Belgian coast. She was fitted with a single 18-inch (460 mm) gun in 1918, but only fired four rounds from it in combat before the end of the war. She was deemed redundant after the end of the war and was sold for scrap in 1927.[1]
