Following WWII, the Canadian corvette Sudbury was converted into a Deep-Sea
Tug by PAcific Mills. Two years later she was sold to Island Tug and Salvage
of Victoria BC where she was to become famous for a series of rescues
off the North Pacific Coast. Later she was involved in the regular transport
of US aircraft carriers to Japan for scrapping before her accidental destructiion
due to a watchman forgetting to check the water level in the boilers ..
hours later it burst and Sudbury caught fire.
Pat Norris covers the history of theSubdury and her consort, Sudbury
II, in a most readable account of their service.
