HMCS DUNDAS K229
Built at Victoria and commissioned on 01 Apr 1942, she joined Esquimalt Force after working up, and in Aug 1942 made a round trip as convoy escort to Kodiak, Alaska, in support of the Aleutian campaign. On 13 Sep 1942 she sailed for the east coast to replace an Operation "Torch" nominee, joining WLEF upon arrival at Halifax on 13 Oct 1942. She served with EG W-7 from Jun 1943, with W-5 from Sep 1943, and with W-4 from Apr 1944. In the course of a major refit at Montreal from 13 Jun to 19 Nov 1943, Dundas acquired her extended fo'c's'le. She commenced another long refit early in Jan 1945, at Liverpool, N.S., resuming service in Apr 1945. Paid off on 17 Jul 1945 at Sorel, she was sold later that year and broken up in 1946 at Hamilton, Ont.
