Built by George Brown & Co., Greenock, being laid down on 27 October 1939, launched on 5 September 1940 and commissioned on 23 December 1940. In May 1941, Aubrietia formed part of the initial 26-ship order for Flower-class corvettes placed on 25 July 1939 under the 1939/40 Naval estimates. On 9 May 1941, Aubrietia sighted and depth charged the German submarine U-110, leading to its capture and the seizure of a German Naval Enigma (enigma machine) and its Kurzsignale code book. After February 1942, she moved to support convoys on the Atlantic run between Freetown, Sierra Leone and Liverpool. The painting shows her departing Freetown harbour, wearing Mountbatten Pink camouflage. On 30 March 1942, Aubrietia picked up survivors from the British merchant ship Muncaster Castle, which was torpedoed and sunk south-south-west of Monrovia, Liberia. After the war, she was sold on 29 July 1946. She then spent almost two decades operating as a Norwegian whaler. She was sold for scrap in 1966.
