Fairmile Motor Launch - Q052
Q052 was delivered to the RCN on 31 Oct 1941. While she flew the White Ensign, she was not commissioned into the RCN but instead was listed as a tender to HMCS Sambro, the depot ship for escorts (tenders were not commissioned vessels). Q052 had served with the free French Navy of St. Pierre et Miquelon on the South Coast of Newfoundland from 15 Jan 1943 until the end of the war. After the war, Q052 was sold to General J. C. Escobar, Montreal and was later renamed Cyrius and La Marie-Jo.
