Both photos are from the Macpherson Collection of the Naval Museum of Alberta.
HMCS Chilliwack on the West Coast after launch (1940). She still has no
secondary armament in the aft bandstand and no splinter mats around the bridge. You can also see two masts with the
foremast and mainmast.
HMCS Chilliwack on the East Coast some time in 1942 with only a single
mast and although harder to see, she has much wider bridge to accommodate machine guns (this photo is before
December 1942 when she was fitted with a 271 Radar in a lantern aft of the bridge in Londonderry).
