The Supplement to the Monthly Navy List at this juncture ceased bothering to print detailed information on minesweeping formations. The four vessels from this flotilla are described as being detailed to unspecified "Mine Clearance Service". Though reference is made to a separate Mine Clearance Service Weekly Return for more information, no copy of that work has been located.
