Arabis Class (1915) SL
ships of the Arabis Class were the third sub-group of
Flower Class (1915)
minesweepers to be constructed under the Emergency War Construction
They were ordered in July-1915 in three batches. (An additional 8 ships were constructed by British yards for the French Navy.)
All had triple hulled bows which gave extra protection while sweeping. All were launched between late 1915 and May-1916.
