    I'll start this thread here as a sort of test.
    First up some photos during the reinforcement of Hong Kong, 1941:

    Not strictly RCN but related, Queen Elizabeth in Esquimalt, I am not certain but I believe that she had her degaussing ring fitted at this time.

    HMCS Chedabucto before she headed for the East coast, Esquimalt, late 1941. Although these ships did not have their pennant number painted on at this time, they flew their numbered pennants when entering the harbour.

    Another 'Elizabeth', Princess Elizabeth, Canadian Pacific coastal liner. Some of these ships got grey paint but I don't have any of PE in camo.

    Great pictures. I saw the Queen Elizabeth on her last visit to New York. She was alone in a two ship slip on the Hudson River so my grandfather was able to take his 28 footer right in there with her. I remember waving to some cooks through their open galley loading hatch in the side of the hull.
