Historical Background of HMCS OAKVILLE and RCSCC OAKVILLE

On Wednesday November 5th, 1941, Oakville residents thronged to Lakeside Park to join in and cheer at dedication ceremonies for the corvette HMCS OAKVILLE. Residents, semi-military, military and civilian units paraded through the streets. Mrs. F.M. Deans, wife of Mayor M. Deans, dedicated the corvette. Rev. Canon D. Russell Smith blessed the vessel. All community and civic organizations were represented in the guards of honor.

MenOfValour.jpgHMSC OAKVILLE went off to World War II and on August 28th, 1942 sunk a German U-boat, U-94, one of only three corvettes to do so during the war. A Men of Valor poster commemorates this historic event.

One June 11th, 1989 Lieutenant Governor Lincoln Alexander unveiled a stone cairn in Tannery Park dedicated to the Officers and Crew who served in HMCS OAKVILLE.

On Saturday November 6th, 1999, RCSCC OAKVILLE was formally commissioned. This Sea Cadet Corps has the honor of holding the same pendant number as HMCS OAKVILLE - K178. The Badge the Sea Cadets wear on their tunics is reminiscent of the original town crest and the gun shield created for HMCS OAKVILLE.

On Sunday May 28th, 2000 RCSCC OAKVILLE held its 1st Annual Inspection and celebrated another victory. We continue this tradition in the hope that OAKVILLE will continue to uphold the fine maritime traditions of our community.
