Fate: Sold after the war. Final disposition unknown

 

This rather bizarre-looking vessel was built in Britain in 1913 as the three-masted topsail schooner Exmouth II, tender to the Thames River training ship Exmouth. She was renamed after her sale in 1927 to the Lieutenant-Governor of British Columbia. Used by the RCN as a miscellaneous auxiliary on the west coast, she was sold after the war and was still in service in 1981.
