HMS Erne (U03) was a Black Swan-class sloop laid down by Furness Shipbuilding at Barrow-in-Furness on 21 September 1939, launched on 5 August 1940 and commissioned on 3 April 1941. She took her name like others in her class from birds, in this case a White-tailed Eagle, also known as the Erne. On 30 April 1941, while Erne, (Lt.Cdr. H.M. Darell-Brown, RN) was still at the builders yard (4 days after commissioning), a near miss during a German air attack caused heavy damage. Repairs took until June 1942.
