Minesweeper HMCS Drummondville (J 253)
6 Jul 1942
HMCS Drummondville (Lt. J.P. Fraser, RCNR) damaged U-132 with depth charges after forcing her to dive by a ramming attempt. The U-boat just had torpedoed the Dinaric from convoy QS-15 in the St. Lawrence River and her action prevented a further attack on the ship, which however foundered later on 9 July. The minesweeper picked up 34 survivors from the torpedoed vessel and landed them at Sydney on 7 July.
