H.M.S. Osiris (1928)
Builder: Vickers-Armstrongs, Barrow
Launched: 19 May, 1928[1]
Broken up: 1946[2]
H.M.S. Osiris was one of six Odin Class submarines completed for the Royal Navy.


Commissioned 13 December, 1929 for service with the Third Submarine Flotilla on the China Station,[3] remaining there until at least early 1933.[4]

In 1934, her bell, inscribed with her name and perhaps her motto, was offered for sale to naval officers and others who might be interested, at a price between £1 and £5. Interested parties were to write the Director of Stores and were urged to include any special information which might convey the importance they attach to the bell, in light of the Admiralty's understanding that such items carry great sentimental value. Just why her bell would be offered for sale at this point in her career seems hard to explain.[5]
