This 1918 photograph shows HMCS Galiano's ship's company posing around their ship's main armament, a 6-pounder gun. Originally ordered as a patrol ship for the Fisheries Protection Service, the Galiano operated in British Columbia waters before being requisitioned for service with the Royal Canadian Navy in September 1917. The ship, its entire crew, and one civilian passenger were lost in a heavy storm during the early hours of 30 October 1918, less than two weeks before the end of the First World War.
