The Dragon was one of eight ships of the "D" class of British cruiser. They were a development of highly successful "C" class, with armament increased by one 6-inch gun and twin torpedo tubes substituted by triple mountings. Their armament as completed comprised 6-6", 2-3", 2-2pdr. and 12-21" torpedo tubes. In addition to the eight completed ships (Dragon, Danae, Dauntless, Delhi, Despatch, Diomede, Durban and Dunedin) further four {Dryad, Daedalus, Daring and Desperate) were cancelled after First World War.

The Dragon was began on 24 January 1917 in the Scott's Shipbuilding & Engineering Co.
Ltd., Greenock, She was launched on 29 December 1917 and completed on 16 August 1918. Dragon and Dauntless were fitted with a clumsy hangar below the command post. Dragon entered service with the 5th Light Cruiser Squadron in Harwich. In October and November 1919 she fouhgt - together with Dauntless on the Baltic. Then she joined the 1 Light Cruiser Squadron (Atlantic Fleet), until 1925. In 1923 she made a voyage around the world, together with Hood, Repulse and 3 other "D" class cruiser. Then she served with 1 Cruiser Squadron on the Mediterranean, though in 1927 she was in the Chinese waters. During a 1928 refit the hangar was dismantled. Later the Dragon served in the West Indies (in 8 CS) until 1937, when she was sent to Chatham for reserve. In 1938 she became a training ship in Nore. As the war was approaching, she was reactivated and served in the 7 CS in the Norther Patrol. In 1940 she operated on the South Atlantic, Mediterranean and the Indian

Ocean. On 16 September 1940 she intercepted a French merchant ship Touareg off Africa, while a week later she took part in the British attack on Dakar. The she operated from Freetown, taking part in the search for the German Admiral Scheer. By the end of 1941 she served with 5 CS on the Far East, escorting convoys from

Singapore and later oo west Java.
In May 1942 she screened the Allied troops landing on Madagascar. In May 1942 she began refit, first in Capetown, and since December 1942 in Liverpool. By that time the Admiralty decided to transfer the Dragon to the Polish Navy in exile. She was transferred on 15 January 1943 and reained her previous name. The refit was completed in August 1943 and Dragon began the work-up in Scapa Flow, until October. Further repairs were carried out until January 1944 and in February the Dragon screened the JW.57/RA.57 Arctic convoy. In March 1944 Dragon joined th 10 CS and began the invasion traing. In April and May 1944 she had her A A armament augmented during another refit in Chatham. In June 1944 Dragon shelled the enemy positions in the "Sword" area. On 8 July Dragon was hit by a German torpedo fired by a "Neger" midget submarine. 36 men died and the ship was scuttled as an additional hull in the "Gooseberry" artiifcial harbour.

Few weeks later Polish Navy approached the RN with a request for another cruiser. Shortly afterwards Dragon's sistership, the Danae was transferred to the Polish Navy and renamed Conrad.
