H.M.S. E 11 was one of fifty-seven "E" class submarines completed in Britain before and during the Great War.

Service

On 15 October, 1914, E 1, E 9 and E 11 sortied to enter the Baltic. Lieutenant Nasmith alone failed to evade patrols in the Sound and he returned to base.[6]

E 11 was to make up for its failure by rescuing three ditched pilots from the Boxing Day raid on Cuxhaven, even as a Zeppelin attacked her.[7]
