H.M.S. B 11 was one of eleven "B" class coastal submarines completed for the Royal Navy.

While operating in the Mediterranean Fleet's Submarine Flotilla,[5] B 11 sank the Turkish Template:TU-Messudiyah in the Dardanelles on 13 December, 1914.[6]

Service

After being attacked by an Austrian flying boat on 11 December, 1915, Lieutenant Gravener saw the plane set upon the waves with an engine problem. B 11's machine gun jammed and the enemy plane was able to take off again before a ramming attempt could be made.[7]

But the opportunity would arise again, as on 17 January, 1917 B 11 captured another seaplane and crew who had set down with engine trouble.

Captains

Dates of appointment are provided when known.

I can't explain the overlap between Warren and Ramsay.
