Submarine 1949 .., HMS Strongbow

A Submarine/U-boat in the process of being broken up at Thos Wards yard at Preston in 1949.

Any ideas as to the type of sub

That looks like a British S class boat. Most like candidate is HMS Strongbow P235.
Unlikely to be a U-Boat because most of those that survived and surrendered were either scuttled or expended as targets under Operation Deadlight.

Wards scrapped 2 submarines at Preston - Strongbow in 1946 and Upshot in 1949. Ahead of the submarine is a landing craft 1118 which was also scrapped at Preston in 1946. So Strongbow is the answer.
