Splendor (PG-97) was launched for the United States Navy on 11 February 1943 by the Kingstone Shipbuilding Co., Kingston, Ont., Canada. However, upon completion, Splendor was transferred to the Royal Navy on 28 July 1943 and commissioned as HMS Roseboy (K.286). On 20 March 1946, she was returned to the United States Navy. Never commissioned in the United States Navy, Splendor was transferred to the Maritime Commission on 19 November 1946 for disposal.
