HMS Tudor was a British submarine of the third group of the T class. She was built as P326 at Devonport Dockyard, and launched on 23 September 1942. So far she has been the only ship of the Royal Navy to bear the name Tudor, after the Tudor period or Tudor dynasty.
Tudor served in the Far East for much of her career in World War II, where she sank five Japanese sailing vessels, four Japanese coasters, and another Japanese vessel, as well as an unidentified sailing vessel north of Sumatra.
She survived World War II. On 23 April 1949, Tudor arrived at Halifax, Nova Scotia to begin a three-month tour in Canadian waters helping train Canadian surface vessels in anti-submarine warfare. Tudor returned to the UK in July 1949, relieved by HMS Tally-Ho. The submarine was sold for scrap on 1 July 1963 and broken up at Faslane.
