On Thursday, October 9th, Naval Reserve Officer and Commanding Officer of RCSCC Oakville, Lt(N) Sean E. Livingston C.D., will be launching his first book, Oakville’s Flower: The History of HMCS Oakville. Livingston will be presenting on the book, which takes an in-depth look at the history and legacy of HMCS Oakville, a Canadian World War II corvette that fought in the Battle of the Atlantic and was one of the few corvettes to sink a U-boat.

“I’m thrilled for this opportunity to share over a decade of research on HMCS Oakville,” says Livingston. “It’s an important piece of Canadian naval history.  I’m also honoured to celebrate this launch at the historic Oakville Museum.  The Oakville Navy League will be selling books at the launch to support the Oakville Sea Cadets.”

 

The book follows HMCS Oakville through its rise and fall as a Canadian naval legend, to its revival in the town of Oakville, championed by the local Sea Cadet Corps that shares its name and safeguards its legacy.
