HMCS OTTAWA 341

 

 

The gunshield art on HMCS OTTAWA 341 (4th of name) makes reference to her heritage and the WW2 destroyer HMCS OTTAWA H31 (2nd of name).

 

HMCS OTTAWA H31 formerly HMS GRIFFIN, was transferred to the RCN after the loss of HMCS OTTAWA H60.  On 20 Mar 1943, she was commissioned at Southampton as HMCS GRIFFIN. On 10 Apr 1943, despite the objections of her captain, she was renamed HMCS OTTAWA.
