Originally named Empire Protector when launched on 20 July 1944. Her name was changed on 23 November 1946 to Wave Protector when she became an RFA. She was one of the 20 original Wave Class tankers in RFA service.

Towards the end of her RFA service she was laid up in November 1958 at Ras Hanzir, Grand Harbour, Malta before being sold for scrap and towed from Malta on 16 August 1963 to Italy for breaking up
