HMCS Sackville. The last remaining Flower Class corvette.

Now a museum ship, she is tied up at the Maritime Museum of the Atlantic, Halifax, Nova Scotia.

After being torpedoed on the 13th November 1941 HMS Ark Royal rapidly developed a severe list
The destroyer HMS Legion came alongside and took off almost 1500 men whilst a group stayed on board attempting to prevent her sinking.

The wreck, seen in the lower view, still lies upside-down at the bottom of Scapa Flow, and still holds the remains of over 800 of the crew who perished in the sinking.
