Royal Navy Submarines by Post-1947 Pennant Number 

Number

Name Class
Note: This page was compiled using each submarines pennant number as known. 

Since then I have found that about 1961? submarine pennant numbers were changed. With the range 1 - 99 allocated to post-WW2 diesel boats, and 101 onwards allocated to Nuclear powered boats. For example, HMS Dreadnought originally allocated pennant S80, became S101. 

Also, from the second Trafalgar Class SSN, nuclear boats have been allocated numbers below 100. So another renumbering exercise has taken place. When research reveals what has been happening the following list will be re-arranged.

So the numbers listed should be used while taking the above into account.
