The C-class was a group of twenty-nine light cruisers of the Royal Navy, and were built in a sequence of seven groups known as the Caroline-class (six ships), the Calliope-class (two ships), the Cambrian-class (four ships), the Centaur-class (two ships), the Caledon-class (four ships), the Ceres-class (five ships) and the Carlisle-class (six ships). They were built for the rough conditions of the North Sea, and proved to be rugged and capable vessels, despite their being somewhat small and cramped.
