She developed engine trouble soon after her transfer.[2] With the end of World War II just days after her transfer and the imminent independence of India, she was transferred back to the Royal Navy in 1946.

In 1947, she was sold to the Royal Thai Navy and commissioned as HTMS Prasae. On 7 January 1951, during a snowstorm, she was beached on the east coast of Korea. After unsuccessful attempts to pull her off the beach, she was scuttled.
