1941 - 1944: US S Class

Six US S Class submarines were transfered to Britain under the Lend-Lease program. These were mostly used for training in anti-submarine warfare and removed from service by mid-1944.

The Lend-Lease policy, formally titled An Act to Promote the Defense of the United States was a program under which the United States supplied the United Kingdom (and British Commonwealth), Free France, the Republic of China, and later the Soviet Union and other Allied nations with food, oil, and materiel between 1941 and 1945. Loaned on the basis that such help was essential for the defense of America, this aid included warships and warplanes, along with other weaponry. It was signed into law on March 11, 1941, and ended on September 20, 1945. In general, the aid was free, although some hardware (such as ships) were returned after the war. In return, the US was given leases on army and naval bases in Allied territory during the war.
