Twenty-third Fleet Sweeping Flotilla (Royal Navy)
1 December, 1918 – May, 1919
|Operating from Buncrana|
June, 1919 – onward
From June, 1919 onward, the organization of Britain's minesweepers becomes indistinct, as they are simply listed together as "Vessels Employed on Mine Clearance Service" in the Navy List. There is allegedly a separate Mine Clearance Service Weekly Return for closer detail, but we do not have any of those.
