The Sinking of the SS Winnipeg II
On 22 October 1942, German submarine U-443 torpedoed the Canadian Pacific Steamship Lines general cargo and passenger vessel Winnipeg II.
These photographs are from the album of Stanley Hardy, a sailor aboard the corvette HMCS Morden, which rescued over 190 passengers and crew from the torpedoed merchant ship Winnipeg II. The images depict the ship's sinking and the subsequent rescue operation that saved everyone on board.
