HMS Juno - Name History

The seventh ?JUNO? was an 8-gun screw corvette, launched at Deptford in 1867.  She was of 2240 tons, 1380 horse-power, and 10 knots speed.  Her length, beam, and draught were 200ft., 40ft., and 18ft.   The box-like shape of this vessel led to her being nicknamed the ?Tea Chest.?   In 1878  the ?Juno,? commanded by Captain J.A. Poland, was engaged in watching a Russian squadron in the Far East during a period of strained relations.   In 1887 the ?Juno? was sold.
