HMS Cambrian was a C-class light cruiser built for the Royal Navy during World War I. She was the name ship of her sub-class of four
ships. Assigned to the Grand Fleet, the ship played only a small role during the war. Cambrian was assigned to the Atlantic and
Mediterranean Fleets during the 1920s and was sent to support British interests in Turkey during the Chanak Crisis of 1922–23. The
ship was placed in reserve in late 1929. She was sold for scrap in 1934.
