SUBMARINES:  CHATHAM BUILT

HM Canadian Submarine Ojibwa

Ojibwa was laid down on 27 September 1962 and launched by Lady Miers on 29 February 1964.
She was commissioned into the RCN on 23 September 1965 with pennant number 72.
She was originally ordered for the Royal Navy as HMS Onyx, but the hull was transferred to the RCN prior to completion.
She served virtually her entire career with Maritime Forces Atlantic (MARLANT) in the North Atlantic, except for a short deployment to British Columbia with Maritime Forces Pacific (MARPAC) in 1997.
Ojibwa was decommissioned from MARCOM in May 1998.



My thanks to Richard Pilon for the information he provided on Ojibwa.
