The History of the ROYALMOUNT

Royalmount was commissioned at Montreal on August 24, 1944, arrived at Halifax on September 8 and carried out working-up exercises in Bermuda later that month. She arrived at St. John's on November 15 to join EG C-1, and spent the remainder of the war with the group as a mid-ocean escorted convoy ONS.48 on her homeward passage to refit, from May 26 to October 5, at Sydney. She was paid off at Halifax on November 17, 1945, and placed in reserve in Bedford Basin until 1947, when a New York buyer purchased her for scrap.
