HMS Teredo was a British submarine of the third group of the T class. She was built as P338 at Vickers Armstrong, Barrow, and John Brown & Company, Clydebank, and launched on 27 April 1945. So far she has been the only ship of the Royal Navy to bear the name Teredo, possibly after a mollusc, the shipworm, of that name.
Commissioned after the end of the Second World War, Teredo had a relatively peaceful career. In 1953 she took part in the Fleet Review to celebrate the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. She was finally scrapped at Briton Ferry, Wales on 5 June 1965.
