Steward Lawrence Saliba was a Maltese sailor of the Royal Navy who died during the Second World War.

He was born in Malta, the son of Francis and Saveria Saliba (née Carvana). Saliba died on 14 October 1939 when the German U-boat U-47 torpedoed the battleship HMS Royal Oak at anchor in the naval base of Scapa Flow, with the loss of 833 crew.

Saliba, who was married to Antonia, has no known grave and is commemorated by the Plymouth Naval Memorial.
