HRM Monument #31: WWII Lost Ships

Perhaps the newest monument in Halifax, this large stone slab located at the start of the Halifax Waterfront board walk was dedicated in 2010 by the Atlantic Chief and Petty Officers Association to, "commemorate the ships and men of the Royal Canadian Navy who failed to return through enemy action, stress of weather and accidents during the Battle of the Atlantic and to remind future generations of the price of victory."

On the backside of the monument is a list of all the names of the Canadian ships lost from 1939-1945.

(Notice EP Dan to the right of the monument. For the trivia buffs out there, this is the earliest taken photo on EPTN that includes him.)


  1. I had forgotten how humid those days were. I am enjoying not having my clothes stuck to me all the time now.

  2. Yes, that day was one of the worst. The bottles in my backpack didn't help with the "freshness" factor either.
