HMCS Montreal Done FELEX

HMCS Montreal is due to move from the Machine Shop Wharf to the Dockyard today at 1300. She will be the third vessel to complete the Shipyard portion of FELEX.

HMCS Charlettown is currently in the graving dock, and HMCS St Johns will take her place when she moves to the Machine Shop Wharf.

Interestingly, HMCS Halifax had the flight deck modifications for the cyclone. these do not appear to have been preformed on the Fredericton, though the deck was probably strengthened anyway.
