HMAS Pirie paid off and recommissioned in the Royal Navy as HMS Pirie at Sydney. On 21 May 1946 she sailed for Colombo in company with her sister ships Gawler and Pirie. All were destined for transfer to the Turkish Navy. As a unit of the Turkish Navy Pirie was renamed Amasra. The vessel was not listed in ‘Jane’s Fighting Ships’ after the 1971/72 issue. In 1984, in answer to a query from the HMAS Pirie Association, the Turkish Consulate General advised that ‘Amasra was put out of service on 26 March 1984 after having rendered valuable service to the Turkish Navy’
HMAS GAWLER, (minesweeper), was paid off for transfer to the Turkish Navy. The ship was renamed AYVALIK, and remained in service until 1963.
