I have been looking at the RN T class submarines and their post war service, in particular there reconstructions. A large number of the boats seem to have survived into the 60s but I have only been able to identify 8 welded boats and 5 riveted as having undergone reconstructions. My question is really two fold;

1) How many boats was it originally planned to upgrade over all and

2) How many were all welded?

Furthermore does anybody know if there were any plans to upgrade the S and V classes. I know that HMS Scotsman was used as a trials platform or streamlining and quiet propellers and the V's were all but abandoned post war but was any consideration given to further use?

Thank you in advance sealordlawrence.
