MinesweepersMine Sweepers at Work

Information from ex Naval personnel and the HMAS Castlemaine indicate these were older ships, probably ex trawlers from earlier years re equiped for min sweeping. These clearly weren’t Corvettes (mine sweepers) built in the early 1940’s. For more information refer to visuals of Corvettes go to http://hmascastlemaine.org.au/
