Description and History
A member of the famous "Tribal" class heavy destroyers, Haida was commissioned in 1943. During WW2, she operated most successfully in the Bay of Biscay and on the Murmansk Run (Arctic Convoys). She was said to be, pound for pound, the most successful warship in WW2. Haida served in the RCN post-war, being modernized several times during this period. Decommissioned in 1963, Haida was laid up in Toronto, Ontario, as a floating memorial, a function which she is still fulfilling albeit now in Hamilton. This drawing represents the ship as at 1963.
The revised plan set represents the changes that had occurred to Haida post war and represents her at decommissioning (as she appears in Hamilton Harbour today) Expanded to 3 sheets of plans.**other scales are offered, these have been digitally resized from this original scaled drawing. Process results in no loss of perspective.
**plans are printed as ordered insuring fresh clean plans
