HMCS Oriole
HMCS Oriole

The sail training ship HMCS Oriole, the longest-serving ship in Canada's navy, helps train junior naval personnel and other members of the Canadian Forces.

During and after the Second World War, Oriole, built in 1921, helped train cadets. After being chartered to the Royal Canadian Navy as a training ship, it was commissioned as HMCS Oriole in 1952 and subsequently moved from Halifax to Esquimalt to continue its training activities. The ship's namesake bird decorates its tri-colour spinnaker (left), a sail some 650 square metres in size.
