HMCS ROYALMOUNT K677
Laid down as HMCS Alwington K677 at Canadian Vickers Ltd., Montreal, she was named after a historic house in Kingston, Ont. In Apr 1944 she was renamed HMCS Royalmount K677, to commemorate Mount Royal, PQ. Royalmount was commissioned at Montreal on 25 Aug 1944, arrived at Halifax on 08 Sep 1944 and carried out working-up exercises in Bermuda later that month. She arrived at St. John's on 15 Nov 1944 to join EG C-1, and spent the remainder of the war with the group as a mid-ocean. She left Liverpool 21 Apr 1945 and escorted convoy ONS.48 on her homeward passage to refit, from 26 May to 05 Oct 1845, at Sydney. She was paid off at Halifax on 17 Nov 1945, and placed in reserve in Bedford Basin until 1947, when a New York buyer purchased her for scrap.
