Fate:
This boat, along with three other 'C's, was sent to the Baltic to reinforce the 'E' class boats which were operating there.
They were towed to Archangel and then made their way down the White Sea Canal on lighters to Kronstadt, where they carried out short patrols in the Gulf of Riga.

Scuttled in the Baltic (Helsingfors Bay), to avoid capture on 4th April 1918.

C26 was salvaged in August 1953 for breaking up in Finland.
