Model, HMCS Skeena
This model of HMCS Skeena belonged to Victor G. Brodeur, the ship's first commanding officer.
It shows the ship's original armament of four 4.7-inch guns in single mountings (left and right) and the two sets of torpedo tubes behind the funnels. Brodeur, the son of Canada's first minister of the naval service, had been one of the country's original naval cadets. He would command Skeena once more in the 1930s before going on to play an important role as Canada's naval representative in Washington during the Second World War.
