HMCS MACSIN FY07 / Z38
Former Minesweeping Trawler - TR ??
A sister to Andrée Dupré and, like her, a TR class naval trawler built at Sorel in 1918, Macsin was sold into commercial hands postwar and renamed Gedéon L. She was later renamed and acquired by Marine Industries Ltd., from whom the RCN took her over in 1940. She served throughout the Second World War as an examination vessel, and later was sold to the French government to serve as a tug at St. Nazaire.
