My father served aboard the cable maintainence ship Iris and I have a copy of one of his discharge certificates dated 1922. I believe she was built in 1902 by DJ Dunlop & Co. Glasgow, My father served in the 1st World War and would have joined her around 1919-20. I believe as a cable maintenence ship her home port would have been Auckland NZ. I do not know what happened to her although there could have been a name change to Recorder. I have a very poor photo of her but would like to know more of her life and where she finished up.By all accounts she was owned by the Pacific Cable Board which represented the Dominion Governments hence the HMCS prefix. I gather this was the forerunner of Cable & Wireless.
