Real Hellas also had these minesweepers and one uncle from my mother side (husband of my mother's sister) served on YMS in mid 1960's during his military duty in Navy.

Nice to see YMS minesweepers in Shipbucket.

I saw previous one as well, but could not comment then. Adter all, I have wrote in plural ("minesweepers") to include all SB YMS drawn.
