General Navy Links :
- Canada's Naval Memorial: HMCS Sackville.
HMCS Sackville is Canada's oldest warship. This naval memorial and national historic site was a combat veteran
of the Second World War. She is the last of Canada's 123 corvettes, one of many convoy escort vessels built in
Canada and the United Kingdom during the war. She played a pivotal role in winning the Battle of the Atlantic
and holds a special place in Canadian naval history and heritage.

- Canadian Military. A huge website which is still under
construction so you may want to return to it often. It has a good section on the Canadian Navy as well as on the other
branches of Canadian Military, from the War of 1812 to Canadians in Afghanistan right now. Also see the sections on
Canadians who fought in the American Civil War and in Vietnam.
- Canadian Navy of Yesterday & Today A large page of links which
is only one of a world-wide naval website.
- For Posterity's Sake. A huge website with great photos. And the "RCN Memories" section is not
to be missed!
- Naval History.ca. News, views, book reviews, and a
large collection of links to other navy websites. Last update seems to have been in 2010.
- Naval-History.net. This British-based website concentrates on RN
history, but it also contains the casualty lists of all Commonwealth navies up to about 1947. Also of note is a huge
(and still growing) collection of transcribed 19th- and 20th-century ship's logs from the British and US navies.
- Stokers on Line. Now off-line. Anyone know what happened to it?
Website mainly for stokers. Interesting photos but has lots of broken links.
- The Memory Project. A large and complex website with audio interview,
photographs, biographies, etc., of men and women from all of the services who served in Canadian wars from WW1 to
- World War One: The War at Sea.
Only a tiny part of the massive British Library website. A must-read for any naval history researcher.
