H.M.S. L 54 was one of thirty-five "L" class submarines completed for the Royal Navy.

Service

The submarine was not completed before long after the end of the war.

She finally commissioned on 29 August, 1924. In March 1925, she was part of Second Submarine Flotilla in the Mediterranean.[5]

2 S.F., then numbering five "L" class submarines, left Malta for England on 26 October, 1926. The formation was expected back in Devonport on 7 November and the boats would fall under command of Rear-Admiral (S).[6]

2 S.F. apparently returned to the Mediterranean, however, remaining there until at least early 1929.[7]

By mid-1931, she had been transferred to the Fifth Submarine Flotilla,[8] where she remained until at least early 1933.[9]

Captains

Dates of appointment are provided when known.

D'Oyly-Hughes appears to have been appointed when it was thought the submarine would be completed in a timely manner.
