Fairmile Motor Launch - Q054
Q054 was delivered to the RCN on 17 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). This was the second Fairmile to terminate her naval service. The last commanding officer left this one on 06 Dec 1944. Q082 was first and Q108 was third. The rest were terminated in the summer of 1945.
