HMCS EASTVIEW K665
Commissioned at Montreal on 03 Jun 1944, Eastview arrived at Halifax on 26 Jun 1944 and proceeded to Bermuda to work up. On her return in Aug 1944 she was attached to EG C-6 as Senior Officer's ship, and on 18 Sep 1944 left St. John's with her first convoy, HXF.308. For the balance of the European war she was continuously on Atlantic convoy duty, and was one of the escorts of HX.358, the last HX convoy of the war, leaving St. John's 27 May 1945. That Jul 1945 she went to the west coast and had barely commenced tropicalization refit when work was stopped and the ship laid up in reserve at Esquimalt. She was paid off on 17 Jan 1946, and sold in 1947, and her hull made part of a breakwater at Oyster Bay, B.C., the following year.
