Category:Minesweeping Flotillas (UK)
Prior to mid-1916 British minesweeping efforts relied on the work of torpedo gunboats, sloops and miscellaneous craft with no formal unit designation. In mid-1916, those vessels supporting the Grand Fleet were organised into the First, Second and Third Fleet Sweeping Flotillas.
Other Fleet Sweeping Flotillas eventually followed.
The new Royal Navy fashioned Minesweeping Flotillas numbered 1-4. By World War II, there was also a Sixth flotilla, weakly implying a Fifth.
