Ships, Submarines and Flotillas

+7 votes
We have categories for Royal Navy Ships and for Royal Navy Submarines.  Having looked at the records of many individuals who were in the Royal Navy, I find that some people are assigned to a ship, some are assigned to a named submarine (usually only the commanders) and others are assigned to a Submarine Flotilla.  Those who were assigned to a Submarine Flotilla would have served on any of the submarines in the flotilla, and also on the submarine depot ship assigned to the flotilla. The composition of the flotilla would have change over the years as submarines were replaced.  Can we have some Submarine Flotilla Categories?

I'm no Royal Navy expert, but M&W has no category liaison right now (and no leader.)

We can only do our best to figure this out. Are we talking wartime? Which war are you looking at?

Hi.  I am looking at the period from 1910 to 1945, specifically submarines and RN activity in Hong Kong.  The submarines flotillas were:

First Submarine Flotilla to the Sixteenth Submarine Flotilla and five others: Ambrose's Flotilla, Mediterranean Flotilla, Platypus's Flotilla, Vulcan's Flotilla, Hong Kong Flotilla

I am mainly interested in the Fourth Submarine Flotilla and the Hong Kong Flotilla.

They should be in a separate group, so that we have Royal Navy Ships, Royal Navy Submarines, Royal Navy Submarine Flotillas.

Thanks for your quick reply.

Looks like British Armed Forces is managed by United Kingdom Project. I will run this by them tomorrow, but I will set up a bit tonight.
