This may well be one of the French boats finished /converted in Britain :

No I didn't know of them. Thanks, they look very informative.

I think the CH boats were built in French yards and were somewhat larger than most RN MGB's   - 120' long and 120 tons or thereabout and may have had steel hulls.

Hi Ley,

 

My mistake,  I now realize you were looking for info about the French submarine chasers which escaped/were taken to Britain. Hence the abbreviation "CH" I didn't recognize (CHasseur de sous-marin). I'm sorry but I don't know anything about sub chasers.
