Bedford Magazine Explosion, 1945

Canadian sailors aboard the destroyer HMCS Iroquois (foreground) watch a large explosion at the Bedford Magazine near Halifax, Nova Scotia, in July 1945.

On 18 July 1945, a fire aboard an ammunition barge at the Bedford Magazine near Halifax, Nova Scotia, spread to the magazine itself and led to a larger fire and series of explosions that lasted until the 19th. James Grant took this photograph from the deck of the Tribal class destroyer HMCS Iroquois, which along with HMCS Haida and HMCS Huron had arrived in Canada the previous month and was being refitted for service in the Pacific against Japan.
