This month I've started to compile some document scans and other information to send to naval historian William Still, author of the impressive book, Crisis at Sea: The United States Navy in European Waters in World War I.
Having covered the war time period (quite thoroughly) in this work, the author is now working on a book on the post-war period, and is interested specifically in the North Sea minesweeping operations, which of course involved quite a few submarine chasers.
If you haven't seen Bill Still's book, take a look. While the portion pertaining to the duties of submarine chasers is only a tiny part of the book (it's over 700 pages), I was pleased to see a fulsome account of activities not just around England but also in the Mediterranean, typically glossed over.
