HMS Aurora was an Arethusa-class light cruiser launched on 30 September 1913 at Devonport Dockyard.

Construction started in 1912 and she was commissioned into the Royal Navy and saw service as part of the Grand Fleet from 1914 to 1915, as leader of the 1st Destroyer Flotilla. In 1915, Aurora was assigned as leader of the 10th Destroyer flotilla of the Harwich Force, guarding the eastern approaches to the English Channel.

Her experienced crew and durability made her a natural choice as a Flagship during many offensive operations throughout the course of the First World War. She was the first Royal Navy warship in action at Battle of Dogger Bank (1915). In August 1915 she took part in sinking of the German raider Meteor. In 1918 she was again reassigned, to the 7th Light Cruiser Squadron of the Grand Fleet and HMS Aurora was one of the ships present at the surrender of the German High Seas Fleet, in November 1918.

Between 1918 and 1920, HMS Aurora was decommissioned in order to relieve financial pressures of the Home Fleet by the Admiralty. Her manning was reduced to a custodian crew and the relieved personnel were sent to other units.

In 1920 she was re-activated in order to outfit her for transfer to the Royal Canadian Navy. The RCN took possession of her on 1 November, 1920 and renamed her HMCS Aurora. She sailed shortly afterward from the United Kingdom for Halifax, Nova Scotia, arriving on 21 December with two ex-Royal Navy destroyers that had also been transferred to the RCN.

After a minimal time in port at HMC Dockyard, the three ships set out for a training cruise via the Caribbean to Esquimalt, British Columbia. HMCS Aurora returned to Halifax on 30 July 1921 via the same route.

In August 1921, drastic budget cuts resulted in the decommissioning of HMCS Aurora. She was immediately Paid Off,
and in 1922 she was disarmed. Her weapons were placed ashore in
training facilities and on other active ships. Her crew was reduced to
non-manned, much of her up-to-date equipment was salvaged for use in
other RCN warships. The Aurora's hulk was left alongside a jetty
at the RCN base in Halifax until 1927 when her deterioration resulted in
city officials demanding the RCN move her. The RCN immediately sold her
for scrap, and she was broken up.
