The Canadian Navy will be in town this evening to pay tribute to the HMCS BELLEVILLE a corvette that played a role in the Atlantic convoys during World War Two. It’s part of the Navy’s 100-anniversary celebrations. Local author Roger Litwiller says although its navy career was short the HMCS Belleville did rescue a merchant ship that had been torpedoed during an Atlantic convoy .The little 207-ton corvette towed the 10,000-ton merchant ship into a British harbour. The BELLEVILLE played out its days with the Dominican Republic navy in the 1970’s before being sold for scrap metal. The Navy makes a presention to Mayor Neil Ellis in a public ceremony at Belleville public library art gallery at 5:30 tonight.
