HMCS Chicoutimi Ball Cap
This ball cap bears the name of HMCS Chicoutimi, the last of four Victoria class submarines delivered to Canada's navy.
In 1998, Canada acquired four Upholder class submarines from the United Kingdom. Built for Britain's Royal Navy, but decommissioned and stored after the Cold War ended, they were overhauled in the United Kingdom and prepared for Canadian service. During Chicoutimi's 2004 trip to Canada, a fire broke out after water from a large wave entered the boat through an open hatch. Several crew members suffered from smoke inhalation, and one, Lieutenant Chris Saunders, died.
