Dover Patrol !

<< < (2/2)

I have just been up to Connaught Cemetery Dover which is only one road away and I found a War Grave for  22yr old who was on HMS Violet in June 1918 in fact I found a further 5 or even more if looked more carefully.
I found the C Class Destroyer operating with the Dover Force Patrol around early 1918 but cannot find why all these men died while with this vessel around June 1918.
Further probing says the vessel was being repaired in June that year but no reason.....?
Does anyone have information please?

My father, a Scottish fisherman, was drafted into the Royal Navy 1914, then the Dover Patrol.
He was blown up four times, survived, married my mother, then settled in Scotland & Chatham.
