Not In Stock - Usually ships in 3-5 Days


Bordered by three oceans, Canada's Navy has always needed ships and crew who could brave the harshest of seas to enforce her sovereignty and protect her freedom. The destroyer has been "the very finest ship" for such tasks. Their crews may call them 'tin-cans' but these hardy ships have faced off against U-Boats, Gunboats, Sampans and North Atlantic gales. From Ushant to Inchon, from the frigid Atlantic and wide Pacific to the narrow Gulf, they have sailed and fought and shown the flag. They are the greyhounds of the seas. They are the Tin-Can Canucks.

About the Author

Sean Campbell is a former reservist with the Canadian Forces, with a deep love of Canadian military history. Hailing from Prince Edward Island, Sean's interest in the RCN was first piqued in 1995 with the commissioning of the patrol frigate HMCS Charlottetown (III), but it was the 2010 Canadian Naval Centennial that truly caught his imagination. He is a competitive scale modeler, having won awards for his work, and has several models of Canadian naval vessels on public display. Some of Sean's prior written work on the history of Canadian destroyers has appeared in Canadian Naval Review. A software engineer turned digital marketing consultant, Sean currently resides in Calgary, Alberta with his daughter and an overweight guinea pig.
