The Inconstant was an Ardent class ASW Gunboat built for the French Navy in 1916. She may have been converted into a minesweeper post-war, and she was apparently condemned by the French Navy in 1933. At around that time, it appears she was acquired by the Cantonese Navy.
I haven't been able to gather much more information about her than that. I am interested in finding out whether or not she really was converted into a minesweeper, the circumstances of her disposal by the French Navy, the circumstances of her acquisition by the Cantonese Navy, and what the Chinese did with this ship. Her Chinese name would help as well.
If anyone can point me in the direction of any sources, it would be greatly appreciated.
