HMS Moon J329

HMS Moon was indeed an Algerine-class minesweeper of the Royal Navy during and after World War II. The Algerine class was a large group of minesweepers built for the Royal Navy and the Royal Canadian Navy during the war. These ships were designed to clear mines laid in coastal waters and harbors, a crucial task for ensuring safe passage for naval vessels and merchant shipping.

HMS Moon, like others in her class, played a vital role in mine clearance operations in various theaters of World War II, including the Mediterranean, the North Sea, and the English Channel. After the war, many Algerine-class minesweepers, including HMS Moon, continued their service in mine clearance and other duties.
