MONDAY, JANUARY 20, 1941 One Of New "Corvette" Boats Canadian Navy Has Tough Little "Corvette" Boats I* or Sub Surprise 'By NEA Service OTTAWA.—The Hoyal Canadian Navy is preparing a .surprise for enemy surface and undersea craft which may venture into Canadian waters. The first of a series of "Corvettes" have gone down the ways and into active .service. These little craft ire "hiLsh-.iiish" as far as speed and armament are concerned. There have been guesses and speculations but these have been so wide of the mark that Canadian naval officers are chuckling and hoping the good work of misinforming the enemy keeps up. The "Corvettes" an; o'f whale-back type, similar to but distinct from a slow sloop. They carry a crew of 50 to 60 officers and men. in addition to their primary armament they carry what the navy succinctly terms "adequate" anti-submarine armament. They are good sea boats and are designed specifically for escorting duties on the Atlantic and elsewhere.
