Shot while deployed on Operation NANOOK-NUNAKPUT, this week’s image features HMCS Harry Dewolf. The ship is the first of the Royal Canadian Navy’s Arctic and Offshore Patrol Ships (APOS).

The image was shot near Crocker Bay, Nunavut, on August 21, 2021, by Corporal Simon Arcand from a Rigid Hull Inflatable Boat (RHIB).

The ship is named in honour of Second World War naval Vice-Admiral Harry Dewolf. He was a native of Bedford, N.S. and commanded the HMCS Laurent and HMCS Haida during the Second World War.

HMCS Harry DeWolf is the first time the Royal Canadian Navy has named a class ship after a prominent Canadian Naval figure.

Because Canada defends more coastline than any other country, AOPS will conduct sovereignty and surveillance operations in Canadian waters on all three coasts.

Cyndi Mills

Admittedly the Queen of Typos, Cyndi Mills strives for none, but one or two always seems to slip in. She apologizes! Over the last 27 years Cyndi has had the opportunity to move around the country with her husband, Scott and their four children. Having lived in Chilliwack, Edmonton, London, and Petawawa. She stumbled into the world of journalism by accident – looking for a career that could give her the flexibility to work from home to be with her children and support her husband's military career. Cyndi is also a military parent as her two oldest children are in the military. Raising her third and fourth teenagers, she tries to keep sane by walking, gardening, writing, and spending time with her family while running Canadian Military Family Magazine.
