Corvettes of the Royal Canadian Navy 1939-1945

Vanwell Publishing, 1993



This would have to be the BIBLE for anyone interested in RCN Corvettes - both the Flower and Castle classes are covered. The first half of the book contains an overview of the corvette and its use in the RCN. The middle section has a photo and brief history of each corvette, while the appendices have plans for both an early short focsle and a later modified Increased Endurance Flower. Additional appendices contain information on assignments and Pennant numbers.

The cover is a very striking colour photograph of HMCS Arrowhead.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED !!!! Corvettes of the RCN is available from
