Story of the HMCS Trentonian

HMCS Trentonian was a modified Flower-class corvette that served with the Royal Canadian Navy during the Second World War – Sunk in action in 1945, and honoured for its service primarily in the Battle of the Atlantic and the English Channel as a convoy escort.

The ship drew its name and its crew from the people of and stationed right next door in Trenton, Ontario who supported the ship and its crew from afar. This feature is a tribute intended to recognize those who served during the Battle of the Atlantic and is inspired by the research of author and historian Roger Litwiller’s books: Warships of the Bay of Quinte, White Ensign Flying, Corvette HMCS Trentonian in the Second World War.
