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.

An old WWII Corvette war ship that we were able to wander through from top to engine. Everything is well labelled which made it easy to understand life on a working war ship. Very historic and well preserved.

Sure, it is just a WWII Navy vessel tied to a dock, but what history, what a feat of survival and accomplishment. Living on board these small ships in the North Atlantic surrounded by waves and fear must have been something else. The Corvettes and...More
