Lamont provides a brief history of the ship with the aid of photographs and diagrams.
Extracts from the memoirs of some of his ship-mates are used to recall life on board and he describes many of the crew in detail, and with great affection. Lamont also recalls his own experiences in the 'Steam Below' spaces of the ship where the men were oblivious to what was happening, either on-deck or in the sea below, and were subject to extreme heat and noise - including the noise of outgoing and incoming shell fire, depth charges and torpedoes exploding nearby. He then recounts his experiences of the events that took place during his career. Lamont gives a most gripping and moving description of the wild and tragic events that followed as Skeena's anchor dragged and she was driven relentlessly onto the rocks near Reykjavik, causing the loss of a number of her crew. Archie George Wares Lamont was born in Canada on April 9th, 1921. He studied Chemical Engineering at the University of Toronto, where he would meet and later marry his wife, Claire. After graduating, Archie trained at the Canadian Officer Training Corps and joined the Canadian Navy shortly after. In April 1944, he was assigned to the destroyer HMCS Qu 'Appelle as Senior Engineer while she lead a group of four destroyers in the naval operations of D-Day and subsequent months. Three years later, after studying for a Master's Degree in Physical Chemistry, he joined Eldorado Mining and Refining as Assistant Uranium Superintendent and later became Assistant Manager. In 1952 Archie, Claire, three-year ­old daughter, Dale, and newly arrived son, Jim, headed to the U.S. as landed immigrants, full of hope for the future. The stay was brief. On returning to Canada, he became a founder of Hatch, one of the world's leading providers of engineering and construction management to the global energy and infrastructure sectors. During his 30 years with Hatch, Archie was a major contributor to the firm's long-term success and was well respected and highly revered by his colleagues. Lamont is keen throughout to impress the importance of good leadership and displays admiration for those who possess that quality. He introduces characters from the ship's company giving a rounded view of how individuals affect the morale and performance of a fighting ship from the Captain to the Engine Room Stoker. He recounts HMCS Qu'Appelle's role as lead vessel of four, patrolling the English Channel during the Normandy Landings, defending the Invasion fleet against the U-boat threat, leading the engagement of an enemy convoy off Brest in The Battle of the Black Stones and her collision with HMCS Skeena during Operation Kinetic.
