John Dunkin, a British trawler, was leased by the Navy and commissioned 30 May 1919, Lt. (j.g.) J. G. Doerscburg in command. She operated out of Kirkwall, Orkney Islands, Scotland, with the mine-sweeping detail in the North Sea. Ships stationed at Kirkwall cleared the western half of the mine barrage laid down during World War I to protect British Harbors. After completing this task, John Dunkin decommissioned 12 August 1919 and was returned to her owners.
