H.M.S. Cleopatra was one of six Caroline class light cruisers completed for the Royal Navy early in the Great War.

Service

She recommissioned at Portsmouth on 25 October, 1920.[8]

She recommissioned at Chatham on 16 October, 1923.[9]

She recommissioned 3 January, 1925 for service with the Second Cruiser Squadron in the Atlantic Fleet.[10]

Alterations

Cleopatra was fitted with a director in July, 1917. This alteration required her pole mast to be replaced with a tripod mast for greater rigidity.[11]

At some point likely after the end of the war, she received a Dreyer Turret Control Table in her T.S..[12]
