S.S. VICTORIA PARK
Defensively Equipped Merchant Ship (D.E.M.S.)
Victoria Park was a Defensively Equipped Merchant Ship (DEMS). Though manned by a civilian crew, she had RCN sailors on board to man and operate the gun that was fitted to her for protection and convoy defence. She was eventually laid up in Dartmouth, NS and broken up in 1965.
