HMCS Jonquiere, 1945.
Our most effective anti-submarine weapon was the hedgehog: This set of bomb-like missiles were fired over the bow
as we slowly approached the target. They hit the surface in a preset pattern, then continued straight down until one
of them struck something. When one of them operated, it triggered the rest of them and a devastating explosion took
place. Sitting on the hedgehog base is signalman Darcy Legros.
