Quidora was an H class submarine of the Chilean Navy. The vessel was originally ordered by the United Kingdom's Royal Navy as HMS H19, but was handed over to Chile in 1917 as H5.


H19 was a British H class submarine built by Fore River Yard of Quincy, Massachusetts. She was launched on 25 August 1915. Because the United States was neutral (having not yet entered World War I), H19 along with sister ships H11, H12, H13, H14, H15, H16, H17, H18, and H20 were all interned by the United States government. As a result, H19 was never commissioned into the Royal Navy. Instead, she and H13, H16, H17, H18, and H20 were transferred to the Chilean Navy as partial recompensation for the appropriation of two 28,000-ton dreadnoughts (Almirante Latorre and Almirante Cochrane). Originally named H5 when turned over to Chile in 1917, she was renamed Quidora in 1924. She served with the Chilean Navy until she was stricken in 1945.
