The Dash 8 derivative (DHC-8 MPA-D8) might be suitable for coastal surveillance, but not for lengthy missions such as those currently conducted by the Auroras. The Auroras have a range in excess of...

Re: RCN WWII BPC Motor Torpedo Boat

Thanks for the background information John - your efforts in researching her background certainly paid off.

Tim:

Yes it was the 26th DF - Saumarez (leader), Venus, Virago, Verulam and Vigilant.
