St. Lawrence Convoy
St. Lawrence Convoy

Canadian war artist Thomas Harold Beament's painting captures how close to shore some of the events in the battle of the St. Lawrence could be.

Beament, who served during the battle of the St. Lawrence, depicts both merchant ships and escorts - a Fairmile motor launch in the foreground, and a minesweeper on the far right. The confined waters of the river and Gulf of St. Lawrence complicated Allied naval operations, and underwater conditions made detecting submerged German submarines very difficult.
