H.M.S. Dolphin (1882)
Builder: Raylton Dixon, Middlesbrough[1]
Launched: 9 Dec, 1882[2]
Sold: 1925[3]
H.M.S. Dolphin was one of two Dolphin Class composite screw sloops completed for the Royal Navy. She served as a submarine depot ship in the Great War.

Service

Dolphin was commissioned at Sheerness on 1 May, 1884.[4]

In 1907, Dolphin was made an accommodation ship for submarines.[5]

She became an independent command in Portsmouth on 31 August, 1912 under Captain Roger J. B. Keyes, Commodore 2nd Class in charge of Submarine Service.[6]

In mid-1913, Dolphin was servicing the Second Submarine Flotilla[7] and was still doing so at the outset of the war. In September 1916, she moved over to assist the Sixth Submarine Flotilla until the end of the war.[8]

On 15 October, 1924, the somewhat more youthful H.M.S. Pandora took on the name and duties of Dolphin as parent ship to the submarines at Fort Blockhouse.[9]
