I wish to express my thanks to Ian MacCorquodale of Dartmouth, Nova Scotia, for these fine photographs. Ian waited for ideal lighting conditions before photographing Sackville, and put great effort into capturing her essence. It shows in these excellent photographs. A ship as important in WW2 naval history as the Flower Class Corvette deserves as much, and Ian has done her justice.
