Coastal Drifter - CD 69
In the Spring of 1918, CD 69 was operating out of Gibraltar. In Aug 1918, she and CDs 61 and 75 were transferred to the Azores and did mine clearing sweeps out of Ponta Delgada until the end of the war. After the war's end, they returned to Gibraltar. Departing Gibraltar on 01 Jan 1919, they arrived in Portsmouth on 19 Jan 1919 where CD 69 was paid off and the crew demobilized.
