I can't find a Rudolf but HMS Reindeer (1804 Brig-Sloop, 1829 Packet Brig, 1866 Sloop, 1883 Screw Sloop)
Of course we would need HMS San Nicolas (1797 3rd Rate Ship of the line ex-Spanish ship San Nicolas captured by a boarding party from HMS Captain led by Horatio Nelson at the Battle of Cape St Vincent)
And the trawler HMS Elf requisitioned in 1917
