It should be noted that YAG means Yard, Auxiliary, General, not Gate. The gate vessels are very different.

Thanks again Ian. I must ask, how did you identify her? Is there a website on decommissioned RCN Ships? There was another EX- YFM in the same harbour with a more completed refit. I'll send you a photo if you like.
Regards, Al

Hello again Al, I would post it as Grizzly with her pennant No.306 included, seeing as there is a new HMCS Grizzly in service, and by looking at the photo I cannot make out a new name unless someone says otherwise.

Thanks Ian. Should I repost it as the 'Grizzly' or do you know if it has a new name?

CFAV YAG 306
