H.M.S. H 33 was one of forty-four "H" class submarines completed for the Royal Navy in the 1910s.

Service

In March, 1925 she and H 26 and H 43 comprised Group "F" Submarines in Reserve at Portland under the command of Lieutenant George C. P. Menzies.[6]

In early 1926, she was still in Group "F" at Portland, but with just one other submarine.[7]

On 1 March, 1926, she was placed under the command of Lieutenant-Commander Christopher de Saumarez Brock, seemingly liberated from group "F".

By mid-1931, she was with the Sixth Submarine Flotilla[8] remaining there until at least early 1933.[9]

By mid-1937, she had moved to the Fifth Submarine Flotilla.[10]
