H.M.S. H 43 was one of forty-four "H" class submarines completed for the Royal Navy in the 1910s.

Service

At the end of 1922, she was the sole "H" class boat in reserve group "G" at Portland.[6]

In March, 1925 she and H 26 and H 33 comprised Group "F" Submarines in Reserve at Portland under the command of Lieutenant George C. P. Menzies.[7]

From at least mid-1927 through at least early 1929, she was part of the Fifth Submarine Flotilla.[8][9]

By mid-1931, however, she had moved to join the Sixth Submarine Flotilla. Lieutenant Geoffrey Tanner was listed as being in her since 27 April, 1931, but was not marked as "in command".[10] She remained with the formation until at least early 1933.[11]
