When the Admiralty was faced with the critical shortage of both Escorting and Minesweeping vessels, during there early part of WWII, they solved the problem by drawing up simple designs for both type of vessel, which where capable of rapid production. The escort design became the now famous Flower Class Corvette and the Minesweeper design became the less famous, but no less important Bangor Class.

The design was much shorter than the pre war Minesweeping sloops of the Halcyon Class, which gave them what can only be described as dumpy and slab sided appearance.

Despite their size, the class served all over the world, and proved a very satisfactory design, in both Minesweeping and Escort roles.
