Service

From at least mid-1927[6] to at least early 1929, she was part of the Sixth Submarine Flotilla, tender to Vulcan.[7]

In early 1933, she is the only boat in her class in the Navy List, and listed as having been "reduced to immediate Reserve at Gosport" and part of the Fifth Submarine Flotilla on 22 July, 1932.[8]

Captains

Dates of appointment are provided when known.

A Lieutenant in Command S. J. C. Nichols was appointed in command on 21 April, 1930, but I am having trouble identifying him fully.[20]
