HMCS RAYON D'OR
Requisitioned on 11 Sep 1939, this former fishing trawler became an auxiliary mine sweeper based at Halifax. Her duties also included loop-laying and maintenance. Early in 1943, following a winter refit, Rayon d'Or was assigned to Sydney Force and remained in that service until Feb 1944, when she rejoined the Halifax Local Defence Forc3. Paid off in 1945, she resumed her commercial career until 1954.
