Launched in 1920, the submarine is very likely to have been built with asbestos insulation. At times, it was used in training midshipmen at United States Naval Academy in Annapolis, Maryland, as well as in assisting the diving school at Piney Point, Maryland. After performing its duty, the submarine was decommissioned in 1942 and subsequently transferred to the Royal Navy. Finally, the USS S-22 was sold for scrapping in 1945.
