To keep a Ship’s Company at peak fighting efficiency, every opportunity to train was used to hone the sailors skills and ability. In this picture, the forward gun crew practices loading HMCS TRENTONIAN’s 4 inch gun while in Londonderry harbour in May 1944, just prior to the corvette’s participation in the invasion of Normandy.
