- Notes: Built for Siemens Brothers as a replacement for the first CS Faraday from 1874. Launched 16 Feb 1923, the new CS Faraday carried out her maiden voyage in that year with the purpose of laying cable between New York and Canso, Nova Scotia. She also carried out a number of cable laying and surveying exercises both in home waters and the Pacific until 1939 when she was chartered by the Admiralty to recover German cable off Ushant with the intention of refurbishing the cable and relaying it to Narvik. This plan was cancelled after the evacuation from Narvik and the ship was then laid up until requisitioned by the Admiralty, first for training of Naval cadets but then for cable work around the African coast. Bombed 26 Mar 1941 by German aircraft off St. Anne's Head with 8 killed and 25 wounded; sank next day West Dale Bay and broke in three.
