History of the M33
The keel for M.33 was laid on 1st April 1915 and she was launched on 22nd May
The Gallipoli Campaign, which began in February 1915, M33 sailed to the Dardanelles in July 1915.
In January 1916, M.33 was ordered to Salonika to support the Allied flank against the Bulgarians. In May 1916, whilst under enemy fire, she assisted in salvaging guns from the damaged M.30 beached on Long Island.
M.33 operated with several Detached Squadrons in the central Aegean until almost the end of WW1.
In July 1918 M.33 was deployed to the Allied base at Mudros, on the Greek island of Limnos in the Aegean.
Early in 1919, M.33 returned to England with the reputation of being a ‘lucky’ ship. She was commissioned at Chatham on 10th May and sailed for North Russia with a ship’s company of 5 officers and 72 men, arriving at Archangel in June.
In 1939, she remained at Portsmouth as a floating staff office, reportedly for Wrens.
In April 1997, with new masts in place and bearing her old name HMS M.33, she was dry docked in No. 1 Dry Dock, close to Vice Admiral Nelson’s flagship, HMS Victory
In 2007 M.33 was painted in the ‘dazzle’ anti-submarine camouflage she wore at the end of 1918.
