HMCS Quebec

HMCS Quebec

HMCS Quebec is commissioned at Esquimalt on January 14, 1952. At the launching and naming ceremony, the sponsor, Madame Gaspard Fauteux, wife of the Lieutenant-Governor of Quebec, announces: “I name this ship Quebec. May God bless her and all those who sail in her.” Then with a pair of gold scissors, she cuts a ribbon that unveils the ship’s port nameplate. HMCS Quebec, formerly HMS Uganda, was built in England in 1939 and served with the Royal Navy during WWII until purchased and commissioned by the Canadian Navy in 1944. She continued to serve the European and Pacific theatres of WWII as HMCS Uganda until being refitted and re-commissioned for the third time as a result of the Korean War in 1952. As part of the post war reduction, HMCS Quebec was paid off in June 1956.

Iam seeking a photo of HMCS Quebec (in colour if available) for a friend who served on her. His name is William Fisher. His service onboard was during the late 1950s.He has fond memories of his RCN service and due to his poor health I would like to find a photo of her as a gift to him. Thanks
