Description

The Huron entered service on July 19, 1943, and served in the Canadian Navy in the latter part of World War II. She was assigned to the third destroyer fleet of the British home fleet. In October 1943, the Huron sailed to Murmansk with some technicians and naval supplies. In the following months, he traveled to and from northern Russia on escort missions. In February 1944, he came to Murmansk again and joined the Tenth Fleet on a seven-month mission. On April 25/26, 1944, the Huron fought the German Elbe-class destroyer. After the battle, he collided with the destroyer Ashanti, causing damage to the main aquifer of the boiler rooms 1 and 2 on her port side. The Huron returned to port safely and was repaired on May 7, just in time for D-Day. On August 13, 1944, the Huron was refitted. The sea trial was completed on October 20. After that, we drove to Cardiff to install a new radar and shooting director. She was assigned to the Western Waterway in February and March 1945. In April, the Huron and other three ships performed their last escort mission to Russia. After enjoying the liberation of Scandinavia, the three ships returned to Halifax to prepare for the Pacific War. Their modification was cancelled in August and the Huron was retained. Retired on March 9, 1946.
