H.M.S. Glasgow was one of five Southampton Class light cruisers completed for the Royal Navy.

Service

Captain Charles A. Browne was appointed to the ship on 1 March, 1937[5][6] and expected to be her first commander, but perhaps her completion was delayed, as Frederic N. Attwood was in command when she left the dockyard in September.[7] She completed to full crew on 14 September, slated to leave for Portland on 18 October to then proceed to join the Second Cruiser Squadron, where she would be replacing the light cruiser Neptune, which was to go to the Africa Station.[8]
