HMAS SUCCESS, (destroyer), was decommissioned. She had been built for the Royal Navy during World War I, but was commissioned too late to see active service. She was later transferred to the RAN in 1920, (along with her sister ships ANZAC, SWORDSMAN, TATTOO, STALWART, and TASMANIA). At one stage the RAN considered renaming her Rabaul, but this was rescinded and her original name retained.
