Pendant Number: N.71 (1914)
N.78 (Jan 1918)[1]
Builder: Raylton Dixon[2]

H.M.S. Pandora was S. S. Seti, purchased on 11 November, 1914 to serve as a depot ship in the Royal Navy. She was renamed H.M.S. Dolphin in 1924.

Note: There was also a cruiser named Pandora launched in 1900.

Service

Pandora served submarines in Harwich from the Eighth Submarine Flotilla and Ninth Submarine Flotilla from 1915 to 1918.[5]

She recommissioned on 3 January, 1921.[6]

She took the name and duties of H.M.S. Dolphin as parent ship to the submarines at Fort Blockhouse on 15 October, 1924.[7]

Captains

Dates of appointment given.

Brodie and Layton seem to overlap each other. I am unsure about whether Coltart was in command or if that role fell to Rear-Admiral (S) Noel Frank Laurence.
