Cheers,

His Majesty's Motor Launch of which there were fifty originals ordered from Elcho in the US of 34 tons. The later ones (51 to 580) were 37 tons.

Aye

If I'm right, I'm pretty sure H.M.M.L. 233 was stationed with Auxiliary Patrol Group XVI, at the ML base attached to HMS Boadicea II, a shore establishment at Kingstown (Dún Laoghaire) Ireland, and primarily responsible for protecting ships on the Holyhead-Dublin route from German U-Boat attacks.

I say I'm pretty sure, because I have a Deckhand Ernest G Tozer RNR who died aboard ML 233 20th October 1918 from an "Illness" (probably the flu that was taking a lot of people down at that time). Tozer is buried in the Dean’s Grange Cemetery Dublin, but was from Bridgend, Glamorgan.

Do you have any further data on ML 233 that would be of use to me?

Thanks,

Steve
