From Sweeping the North Sea Mine Barrage, a publication of the Department of the Navy, Mine Force division, 1919.

After the Armistice, SC 95 sailed for Archangel, Russia to assist with the evacuation of troops, then returned to England and helped clear the North Sea of mines. This is a crew photo and list of SC 95 during mine sweeping operations.
