HMS Hyacinth was one of three Highflyer-class protected cruisers built for the Royal Navy in the 1890s.

In early 1915, she was deployed to German East Africa to blockade the German light cruiser SMS Königsberg. She destroyed a German blockade runner attempting to bring supplies through the blockade in April and sank a German merchant vessel in early 1916. Hyacinth remained on the Cape Station for the rest of the war and
