HMCS St. Croix and U-Boat in North Atlantic
HMCS St. Croix and U-Boat in North Atlantic

Ronald Weyman's painting depicts the cramped bridge of the destroyer HMCS St. Croix - a veteran of the battle of the Atlantic - during an attack on a German submarine (upper right).

Weyman was in St. Croix as the ship's gunnery officer for much of 1943, and his work most likely shows the 24 July 1942 sinking of U-90. As part of a destroyer screen operating ahead of a convoy, St. Croix sighted the surfaced U-90, forced it to dive, and then destroyed it with depth charges. In March 1943, St. Croix and the Canadian corvette HMCS Shediac destroyed the German submarine U-87.
