HMCS Prince Robert in Hong Kong
HMCS Prince Robert in Hong Kong

HMCS Prince Robert, sent to serve as an anti-aircraft cruiser with the British Pacific Fleet, arrives at the Kowloon docks in Hong Kong, August 1945.

Members of the ship's crew, many in summer uniforms, crowd the ship's rails, while an armed Canadian sailor can be seen in the foreground. Shore parties from Prince Robert and other ships helped disarm Japanese military personnel and maintain order ashore. In 1941, Prince Robert had helped transport Canadian soldiers to Hong Kong; in 1945, the ship's crew helped liberate many of the survivors from Japanese prisoner of war camps.
