Transferred to RCAF: 16 Sep 1941

Fate: Final disposition unknown


HMCS Snow Prince was listed as a tender to HMCS Givency. She served in the Fishermen's Reserve to 16 Sep 1941, then was transferred to the RCAF where she had pendant numbers M.348 and B152 . In addition, every vessel in the RCAF from a canoe to a freighter had an M number. They used M.1 to M.1011. During WWII, the RCAF realized the Navy had issued M numbers as well so they gave the larger RCAF marine craft a B number so they would still be known as a small warship and so they would not be confused with the navy's M numbers.
