    A little more toying with selective color.

    HMCS Sackville was one of more than 120 corvettes built in Canada during the Second World War. Corvettes soon became the workhorses of the North Atlantic, escorting convoys and attacking submarines. HMCS Sackville was built at Saint John, NB and commissioned on 29 December 1941. Serving in several well known escort groups, C1, C2 and C3, “Sackville” escorted convoys from St. John’s to Londonderry, Ireland. from January 1942 to August 1944. “Sackville”, was one of the original members of the famous “Barber Pole Group”. This group with its red and white “Barber Pole Stripes” painted on the funnel is still represented in today’s Navy.
