HMCS Grilse

AJ A Foster, Heart of Oak, Methuen 1985
Formerly the American private steam yacht Winchester, the Grilse was bought south of the border and converted to a torpedo boat for Canadian naval service in WW1. Armament consisted of two 12 pounder guns and a torpedo. Although she saw much patrol work, she never saw action.
