The First Minesweeping Flotilla was a Royal Navy formation of minesweepers.

History

January, 1923

The formation is not explicitly labelled in the Navy List, but is perhaps just the seven twin-screw minesweepers of the Patrol Minesweeping and Fishery Protection Flotilla arrayed under a Senior Officer.[1]

July, 1924

The formation seems the same, but Leamington now boasts the Senior Officer.[2]

May, 1939

Administered by Captain Fishery Protection & Minesweeping, Portland.[3]
