My namesake and a ship that may never appear in this game, HMCS Quesnel. She was a Flower-class corvette (K133) of the Royal Canadian Navy that was laid down by the Victoria Machinery Depot Company Ltd of Victoria, British Columbia in May 1940 and launched later that November. She would be commissioned in Esquimalt, British Columbia on May 1941 and over the course of her career, earn Battle Honours for service in the Atlantic and Gulf of St. Lawrence. HMCS Quesnel would survive the war to be decommissioned on July 1945 and sold to the United Steel and Metal Company of Hamilton, Ontario for scrapping that October. She was finally broken up in 1946.
