HMCS Lady Evelyn after the Halifax Explosion
In this photograph, likely taken from HMCS Canada on the day following the Halifax Explosion, HMCS Lady Evelyn (centre) returns to port.
The Lady Evelyn, a Post Office vessel acquired by the Royal Canadian Navy in 1917, was on patrol in the approaches to Halifax Harbour at the time of the explosion, and returned the following morning. This photograph was probably taken by Sub-Lieutenant Arthur Rankin, who was serving as Canada's navigation officer. One of Canada's guns is visible in the foreground.
