  HMCS Haida dropped her cutter to allow survivors from HMCS Athabaskan to climb into it.

  In January 1941 he was posted to the training base at HMS St. Christopher and in

 blew the stern off of MTB-69 and that was the end of that boat.

        While on patrol in the Bay of Biscay Patrol area at 1300 Hours
 on 27 August 1943, HMCS Athabaskan was attacked by eighteen enemy
 Dornier-217s.  HMS Egret (British Sloop) was sunk.  A glide bomb
 hit HMCS Athabaskan at the junction of "B" gun-deck and the wheel-house.  It
 passed under the plot room, through the Chief Petty Officer's Mess, and out
 the starboard side.  It exploded barely a few feet beyond and bomb fragments
 pierced HMCS Athabaskan's side and bridge in a number of places.  The Captain,
Commander Miles was knocked down by the blast and several officers, including Lieutenant-Commander Dunn Lanthier and Sub-Lieutenant John A. Brebner had severe leg injuries. Able Seaman Joseph McGrath, a bridge lookout, died the next day. The crew of "B" gun bore the worst of the injuries with Able Seaman William Pickett and Petty Officer Ernest Latimer being killed. Leading Seaman John Gordon took charge despite the fact that he was injured and several others were burned. Several members of "A" gun were also burned and wounded. Leading Cook Frank Prudhomme also died. HMCS Athabaskan took on board the 35 survivors from HMS Egret. HMCS Athabaskan continued on at 14 knots, correcting a serious list to starboard. The ship sailed into port on 30 August 1943 under her own power. The ship was battered but not broken. See the book "Unlucky Lady".

MILLS, Mary Effie Francis, Lieutenant  -  Member - Order of the British Empire (MBE) - 
WRCNS / Officer-in-Charge W/T Station at Whitehead, Nova Scotia - 
Awarded as per Canada Gazette of 15 June 1946 and London Gazette of 13 June 1946.
Home: Winnipeg, Manitoba. Born in 1910. Went by Francis.
From an interview with her when she was 90 years old living in a nursing home: In 1942, Mills was a 32-year-old school teacher in Swan River.
A boy she had taught in Carman enlisted and was killed overseas.
That was enough for Mills. She enlisted and spent Remembrance Day on a train to Galt, Ontario, for her basic training.
She spent her military career as a WREN, a member of the Women's Royal Canadian Naval Service.
"We were out on the parade ground. We learned to march. We were taught how to salute."
She smiles at the memory. We learned calisthenics. We were given naval history and learned what the Canadian forces did. It was an exciting time."
The families of women who enlisted endured criticism, Mills remembers.
"There were a lot of people who didn't think women should be in the service at all," the West Gate woman says somberly. "I think the families had to put up with a lot."
Mills finished basic training and was sent to Ottawa to learn about Loran, a new kind of location radar developed at Boston's Massachusetts Institute of Technology. For almost a year, Mills and two other women worked behind a curtain in an office, their work deemed too sensitive for prying eyes. They received electronic signals, forwarded the data to MIT and helped in basic research on sound waves and radar beams.
Then she was transferred to Whitehead, N.S., for the adventure of a lifetime.
"There were men at the station who needed time at sea or they couldn't get a promotion," she says. "The man in charge thought women could do their job and, since the navy now had a women's division, we were sent there. There were 25 of us. We got a chance the American women never had. I really credit our men for their faith in us." The women worked eight-hour shifts around the clock, monitoring radio signals from sea. One night, the radio frequency was scrambled, a likely sign that an enemy submarine was nearby. "We were very frightened, very anxious, Mills says. "We'd all been instructed that a serious problem meant we had to destroy the equipment. The girls in the hut had a revolver. For four hours, we didn't know what was going to happen." Mills was awarded the Member of the Order of the British Empire for her wartime efforts, an honour she downplays. MILLS. Mary Effie Francis, 0-51997, Lt(Temp) [18.9.44] WRCNS MBE~[13.6.44]
"For exemplary devotion to duty under difficult conditions.  As Officer-in-Charge of the
 isolated W/T Station at Whitehead, Nova Scotia, Lieutenant Mills was responsible for
 the operation and maintenance of highly technical equipment and the administration
 of a station where the maintenance of morale was of great importance.  Her constant
 cheerfulness throughout her appointment at Whitehead won the admiration of those
 serving with her."

			"For gallant rescue work."

 On 22 February 1943, HMCS Weyburn (Flower Class Corvette - K173), was mined
 by U-118 off the Strait of Gibraltar.  The ship was moving up the port wing of
 a US-bound convoy when the mine exploded on her port side abreast the engine room,
 which at once flooded, killing one rating.  With all of the crew in the water
 or picked up by HMS Wivern, an after bulkhead let go in Weyburn and she sank
 quickly by the stern. 	Unfortunately, depth charges that had been jammed by the
 original explosion and could not be rendered safe, exploded and killed several
 crew in the water including Sub-Lieutenant BARK.  In all, eight RCN crew were
 killed (including the Commanding Officer LCdr Tom GOLBY who was also killed in
 the water) and 1 RN crew member was also killed.  Lieutenant William Arthur
 Bordett GARRARD (First Lieutenant in Weyburn) and Lieutenant Patrick Sproull
 MILSOM were awarded the MBE; Sub-Lieutenant BARK and Leading Signalman Leonard
 William MURRAY were awarded MIDs.  The action is described in Chapter 25
 of ‘The Canadian Naval Chronicle 1939-1945".

MURRAY, Leonard William, Acting Leading Signalman (V­7912) - Mention in Despatches
 - RCNVR / HMCS Weyburn ­ Awarded as per Canada Gazette of 13 November 1943
 and London Gazette of 1 June 1943.  Home:  Dartmouth, Nova Scotia.
MURRAY. Leonard William, V-7912, A/LS, RCNVR, MID~[13.11.43]

         "For gallant rescue work."

 On 22 February 1943, HMCS Weyburn (Flower Class Corvette - K173), was mined
 by U-118 off the Strait of Gibraltar.  The ship was moving up the port wing of
 a US-bound convoy when the mine exploded on her port side abreast the engine room,
 which at once flooded, killing one rating.  With all of the crew in the water
 or picked up by HMS Wivern, an after bulkhead let go in Weyburn and she sank
 quickly by the stern. 	Unfortunately, depth charges that had been jammed by the
 original explosion and could not be rendered safe, exploded and killed several
 crew in the water including Sub-Lieutenant BARK.  In all, eight RCN crew were
 killed (including the Commanding Officer LCdr Tom GOLBY who was also killed in
 the water) and 1 RN crew member was also killed.  Lieutenant William Arthur
 Bordett GARRARD (First Lieutenant in Weyburn) and Lieutenant Patrick Sproull
 MILSOM were awarded the MBE; Sub-Lieutenant BARK and Leading Signalman Leonard
 William MURRAY were awarded MIDs.  The action is described in Chapter 25
 of ‘The Canadian Naval Chronicle 1939-1945".
