HMS Iroquois, Royal Naval Sloop, 24 Class, launched 1918-1919, sold June 1937.

Royal Navy Sloops came back into existence soon after the outbreak of world war one, when the Admiralty realized it required extra ships for general service which could be used for mine sweeping, escort duties. The Sloops were used exclusively for Mine sweeping until 1917 when they were reassigned for Convoy duties as well.
