Il a été rebaptisé HMS President en 1922 et amarré en permanence sur la Tamise comme navire de la Royal Naval Reserve.En 1982, il a été vendu à des propriétaires privés. Ayant depuis changé de deux fois de propriétaire, il sert maintenant comme lieu pour des conférences et de bureaux pour un certain nombre de société de média. Techniquement, il est maintenant appelé HMS Président (1918) pour être différencier du HMS President, la base de la Réserve navale royale aux Docks de St Katharine de Londres. Il est l'un des trois derniers navires survivants de la Royal Navy de la Première Guerre mondiale. Il est également le seul représentant du premier type de bâtiment anti-sous-marins construit. Il est l'ancêtre des escorteurs de convoi sloops, qui ont évolué pour devenir les modernes frégates anti-sous-marins. Il est inscrit au registre du National Historic Ships depuis 1996 et il est aussi l'un des nombreux bateaux de la National Historic Fleet. (fr)
