HMCS Stellarton

There has been only one vessel named HMCS Stellarton in the Royal Canadian Navy.

HMCS Stellarton (K457)

Commissioned at Quebec City, Quebec, on 29 September 1944, the Flower Class corvette HMCS Stellarton arrived in Halifax, Nova Scotia in late October and sailed for Bermuda the next month for work-ups.

Departing for St. John’s, Newfoundland, on 4 December, she joined Escort Group C-3 and on 4 January 1945 sailed to pick up her first convoy, HX.329. HMCS Stellarton spent the rest of the war as a mid-ocean escort, and left Londonderry, Northern Ireland, for the last time on 21 May to join convoy ON.304.

HMCS Stellarton was paid off on 1 July 1945 and placed in reserve at Sorel, Quebec, until joining the Chilean Navy in 1946 as Casma. She was broken up in 1969.
