HMCS Haida is the only survivor of the 27 Tribal class destroyers built for the Royal Navy, Royal Canadian Navy, and Royal Australian Navy between 1937 and 1945. Haida joined her sisters of the Tribal class as part of the 10th Destroyer Flotilla out of Plymouth, England, in early 1944.
Her illustrious World War II career included the destruction of 14 enemy ships during patrols in the English Channel and the Bay of Biscay. Two tours of duty in the Korean conflict reinforced her claim to the title of "The Fightingest Ship in the RCN." Haida is the most famous ship in the Royal Canadian Navy, having sunk more enemy surface tonnage than any other Canadian ship.
Commemorate HMCS Haida, and the Battle of the Atlantic.
