Launched and commissioned at Midland on 15 Nov 1943, Lindsay arrived at Halifax in Dec 1943 and late in Jan 1944, sailed to Bermuda for three weeks' workups. Upon her return she was briefly attached to EG W-5, but left Halifax on 23 Apr 1944 to join Western Approaches Command at Londonderry. For the next four months she served in U.K. waters, taking part in the D-Day invasion, as an unallocated unit. In Sep 1944, she joined the RN's EG 41, Plymouth Command, for service in the Channel. On 22 Jan 1945, she was damaged in collision with HMS Brilliant southwest of the Isle of Wight. Following temporary repairs at Davenport from  22 Jan to 19 Feb 1945, she sailed for Canada via Londonderry, arriving at Halifax early in Mar 1945. She left there on 15 Mar 1945 for Saint John, where she was under refit until 22 Jun 1945, then proceeded to Sydney and was paid off on 18 Jul 1945. She was sold for mercantile use in 1946 and renamed North Shore, later passing into Greek registry for Mediterranean passenger service until the name of Lemnos. She was broken up ten years later.
