C&CI Journal carried an article on the DH6 which included its use as an anti-submarine aircraft, and wing modification for this role.
 
Peter London's two books (e.g. Aviation in Cornwall - Air Britain) deal with anti-sub ops in the approximate area; also of possible use are :
South Western Approaches : Air Operations in Pembrokeshire by John Tipton
Aircraft versus Submarines, by Alfred Price (is a good overview of the subject, though the WW1 content is limited)
Find and Destroy : Anti-submarine Warfare in WW1
The Air-Britain DH4/9/9A file contains details of aircraft use. 
 
One of the interesting aspects of this is the decision to use pilots graded as not being physically capable of operating on the Western Front.

Hi
I am very interested in anti-submarine patrols.  I am about to go to Hendon to begin research on RAF Westward Ho! and the use of the DH6 and DH9 in this role.
 
Has anyone in the forum a like interest.
 
Best
