U-190 and Canadian Escort

Following its surrender, the German submarine U-190 proceeded to Bay Bulls, Newfoundland, under escort by Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) vessels including the Fairmile motor launch seen in the distance.

HMCS Thorlock and HMCS Victoriaville had removed most of the crew from U-190 following its surrender late on 11 May, but a small group of German officers and sailors, guarded by a Canadian boarding party, remained on board to sail the submarine to Bay Bulls. Flying the RCN's White Ensign, U-190 reached its destination on 14 May.
