Through a Canadian Periscope: The Story of the Canadian Submarine Service
- Russian submarines built in the First World War in BC were constructed in Burnaby and Vancouver and were disassembled for ease of shipment. The latter batch were completed after the Russian Revolution and were sold to the US Navy, which commissioned them in Bremerton.
- In 1939, Canada did not declare war until September 10th.
- In 1944, Newfoundland was a British Crown Colony and not part of Canada. In fact, service personnel from Canada based in Newfoundland were awarded overseas benefits by Veteran's Affairs.
- When boarding a naval ship, you enter at the brow, not the bow.
- HMCS Rainbow listed as SS7S instead of SS 75.
