HMS LST-415 was a United States Navy LST-1-class tank landing ship that was transferred to the Royal Navy during World War II. As with many of her class, the ship was never named. Instead, she was referred to by her hull designation.
LST-415 was laid down on 29 October 1942, under Maritime Commission (MARCOM) contract, MC hull 935, by the Bethlehem-Fairfield Shipyard, Baltimore, Maryland; launched 21 November 1942; then transferred to the United Kingdom and commissioned on 19 January 1943.
LST-415 saw no active service in the United States Navy.
The tank landing ship was returned to United States Navy custody and struck from the Navy list on 2 June 1945. The ship was sold to a local British firm in January 1948, and subsequently scrapped in Grays, England.
