Overview

HMCS Sackville, the last remaining Flower Class corvette in the world, symbolizes the extraordinary effort of Canadians seventy years ago during the Second World War. Restored to her wartime configuration she serves as a museum and memorial to those lost during the Battle of the Atlantic and to honour those who serve and continue to serve in the Naval Service of Canada. HMCS Sackville is berthed at Sackville Landing adjacent to the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic in the summer and in HMC Dockyard during the winter.

Lots to see on this ship including below decks, engine room etc. It is staffed by people who either served on it or one of its sister ships. They proved to be very welcoming and informative.

My late father commanded a corvette on the North Atlantic throughout WW2. This was a emotional and moving experience. Imagining a late 20s law student leaving school for five years to serve his country in such frightening, cold and cramped circumstances is breathtaking.

Great job by restorers of WWTwo Flower class Corvette which took part in convoys from Halifax in 1939 to 1945. Staff and the ship itself very well informed and well done.
