HMCS Huron & HMCS St Laurent, 1944.

Thanks to Steen Laursen (aka Heilbuth) who sent me these photos from a friend of his, whose father, Lt-Cmdr. B. Nixon, was in the RCN during WW2.

This is RCN photograph #H-1854, date stamped August 21, 1944 on the back. Hand-written on the back is: " Anti Submarine trials HMCS St Laurent puts on steam to go in for an attack on O-15 ".

Royal Canadian Navy : unknown cruiser

Unknown cruiser or battleship.
This is RCN photograph #HN-436-R, date stamped August 21, 1944 on the back. No further information, but a website viewer pointed out to me this is probably one of the "Prince Class" armed merchant cruisers, either HMCS Prince Robert, HMCS Prince David, or HMCS Prince Henry.
See photos of these ships.
