Casualty list of the sinking of HMCS St. Croix

The sequel to the forgotten post about HMCS St. Croix…

The reason I forgot was because I had posted the same story on the French version of this blog. There was a French-Canadian sailor who also died.

He was in the engine room.

Here are the first in the list of casualties of HMCS St. Croix.
