HMCS VENOSTA J11
She was commissioned on 17 Nov 1939, as a gate vessel and auxiliary minesweeping at Halifax, and later employed at Sydney. She had served in the RN as a minesweeper during the First World War. Venosta is said to have been paid off on 22 Jan 1942, and designated C.Y. 509. Sold postwar, she was still in service under her original name in 1953, but was later known progressively as Reyneld V, Fort Prevel and Michel P. She was broken up and her register closed in 1972.
