HMCS Givenchy, Halifax, NS, 1919

Canadian sailor John Ambrose Kell kept this photograph as a souvenir of his service aboard the armed trawler HMCS Givenchy in 1919. Givenchy's crew wear a variety of uniforms in this casual image. Note the sailor (back row, fourth from right) holding a brace and bit, as if he is about to drill into another crew member. As part of a postwar redistribution of ships, the armed yacht HMCS Stadacona and the trawlers HMCS Thiepval, HMCS Armentières, and Givenchy left Halifax, Nova Scotia, on 12 March 1919, arriving in Esquimalt, British Columbia, on 4 June.
