Please note this will be a Zoom meeting.

The HMCS Haida is a Tribal class destroyer that served in the Royal Canadian Navy from 1943 to 1963. She served in World War II, the Korean Conflict and the Cold War. She is the last surviving Tribal class destroyer in the world and now rest at Pier 9 in Hamilton and is open to the public. Andrew will tell us about the HMCS Haida’s rich history and service.
At each of our meetings there is a brief period allotted to the business of the Society, followed by a speaker, or presentation on some aspect of local history or heritage. Afterward there will be an opportunity to questions and have conversation which plays an important part in keeping alive the Community spirit. We hope to ‘see’ you there!
Zoom link will be added closer to the event.
