For the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the St. Lawrence (1942-2017) we would like to present Vivez la bataille du Saint-Laurent à travers ses épaves. This project aims to make this little-known part of Canadian history accessible to the general public. More specifically, this project deals with the events that took place on/under water.
On September 9, 1942, a Lockheed Hudson Bombardier attacked the U-165, south of Anticosti Island, but the U-boat had time to dive to safety. Offensive air patrols played an important role in evacuating enemy U-boats in the autumn of 1942. During the Battle of the St. Lawrence, the U-165 torpedoed the Joannis, the Aeas and HMCS Raccoon, as well as damaging the Arlyn, the Laramie, the Essex Lance and the Pan York.
