HMS Sirdar was an S class submarine

Built by Scotts, of Greenock

HMS Sirdar spent most of the war in the Pacific Far East, where she sank two Japanese coasters, two sailing vessels, two unidentified vessels, and the Japanese guardboat Kaiyo Maru No.5. She also damaged another coaster with gunfire

After surviving the war in 1953, HMS Sirdar was in dry dock at the naval dockyard at Sheerness, Kent when Sheerness was struck by the North Sea flood of 1953. Flood waters caused lock gates to fail, flooding the dry dock holding Sirdar and causing her to capsize. She was refloated and returned to service
