The British Service Records and Navy Lists pay scant attention to individual submarines, as regard their commanders. Often, a given submarine commander is listed in a Navy List as being appointed to a submarine depot ship "for command of submarines", with the specific sub being omitted. This invites the interpretation that the submarines may have, in some cases, been treated as taxi cabs within a fleet.

In Command of the Service

The man in charge of the Royal Navy's submarine forces was designated the Chief of the Submarine Service in 1921. In 1929, this evolved to become Rear Admiral, Submarines or Rear Admiral (S).
