Dan-Layer's of WW2.

Looking for info on a certain vessel named HM Tartan. She was requisitioned by the RN in 1939 and used as a Dan-layer. A Dan-layer is a small vessel, usually a Trawler, laying 'Bouys or floating flags' named Dan's after a minesweeper to mark the area as 'clean' of mines. Thanks.

She's also mentioned on this site, which is a site I use if looking for any warship


Tartan is near the bottom of the page.
