- Item Type:
- Photo of a group of military people standing at the quarter-deck for a ceremony of the Lieutenant Commander Moffatt of the H.M.C.S. Stone Town receiving the leather bound "Guest Book" from the "Sponsor" of the ship, Mrs. Thomas.
The ship was named after St. Marys using the nickname the "Stonetown".
After the war, the ship was used as a weather ship, and then eventually sold off as scrap metal.
You can find a mini-display about this ship including the ship's bell in the Military Room of the St. Marys Museum.
- Condition: Good. Image is clear, but paper is worn and thin. Some folds and creases are present. Handle carefully (paper is very glossy which shows imperfections).
