HMCS MICMAC (R10 / Postwar-214)

HMCS MICMAC

The History of the MICMAC

Micmac was commissioned at Halifax on September 18, 1945. Alone of her class, she never fired a shot in anger but spent her entire career as a training ship. On July 16, 1947, she collided in fog with SS Yarmouth County off Halifax, suffering very extensive damage to her bows. While under repair she was partially converted to a destroyer escort, returning to her duties early in 1950. Her conversion was completed during 1952, and she was re-commissioned on August 14, 1953. At the end of 1963, after ten further strenuous years of training, NATO exercises, and "showing the flag", she was declared surplus and, on March 31, 1964, paid off at Halifax. She was broken up at Faslane, Scotland, in 1965.
