Model, HMCS Gatineau
HMCS Gatineau was one of seven new Restigouche class destroyers built by Canadian shipyards to a Canadian design in the 1950s.
Visually similar to the earlier St. Laurent class destroyers, ships like Gatineau incorporated guns for use against aircraft and surface targets (left and centre right), as well as Limbo anti-submarine mortars mounted in wells with retractable covers (right) and anti-submarine homing torpedoes. Later upgrades included better anti-submarine weapons and sensors. Davie Shipbuilding Limited of Lauzon, Quebec, built Gatineau and gave this model of the ship to Vice Admiral Henry George DeWolf.
