HMS Sanguine was an S class submarine of the Royal Navy, and part of the Third Group built of that class. She was built by Cammell Laird and launched on 15 February 1945. So far she has been the only ship of the Royal Navy to bear the name Sanguine.
Sanguine was sold to the Israeli Navy in 1958 and renamed Rahav in March 1959, after the mythical sea-monster Rahab. Not operational during the Six-Day War she was retired in 1968 and cannibalised for spare parts for Tanin, formerly HMS Springer, Rahav's sister ship which did see combat in 1967.
