History

There were 19 operational R-boat flotillas (Räumbootsflottillen) during World War II which were deployed for minesweeping and security duties with the exception of 25. Räumbootsflottille which was formed after the surrender of Germany.

Many of the ships and personnel were employed by the following organisations after the war, The German Mine Sweeping Administration (GMSA), The Office of Military Government, United States (OMGUS) and The United States Labour Service (LSU).

And a small number of these vessels saw service with German Federal Navy (Bundesmarine) from 1956 onwards.
