Rambler sailed for the Azores 4 November and operated with the patrol detachment there until February 1918. Then transferred to the Freneh coast, the armed yacht operated out of Brest, on patrol and escort duty, for the remainder of World War I.
After the Armistice, Rambler remained in European waters and into the spring of 1919 carried mail and passengers between British and French ports. On 20 May she got underway for the United States and arrived at New York late in June. She was decommissioned 9 July 1919, was struck from the Navy list 27 August, and was sold to J. M. Scott of New York City, 16 September 1919.
