DEMS TIPPERARY PARK
Then S.S. LAKE SHAWNIGAN
Then S.S. TABLE BAY
Built by Burrard Dry Dock, North Vancouver, Tipperary Bay was a Defensively Equipped Merchant Ship (DEMS). Though manned by a civilian crew, she had RCN sailors on board to man and operate the gun that was fitted to her for protection and convoy defence. In 1946 she was re-named Lake Shawnigan and in 1950, Table Bay.
