H.M.C.S. Transcona Launched
(By The Canadian Press)
Sorel, Que., Oct. 27
Eight quarts of champagne - the most ever spilled in Canada in one maritime christening - sped towards the Atlantic ocean Saturday along the battle-path to be followed soon by an octet of new Canadian war vessels whose bows it spattered Saturday in a unique ceremony.

Hailed as an event without parallel in Canadian history, the multiple christening started with the smooth launching of one corvette and continued in the same shipyard, operated by Marine Industries, Ltd., with the rapid-fire blessing of seven other tough young warships, all nearly ready for salt-water initiation.

The new vessels - four corvettes and four minesweepers - were named after Canadian cities and towns scattered through seven provinces from Esquimalt, B.C., to Fredricton. Prominent women from each municipality - including five mayors wives - acted as godmothers and absorbed the champagne spray blown against each in turn by a cold autumn wind.

Wives of Mayors
Dedicated in quick succession after them were the minesweepers ... and H.M.C.S. Esquimalt by Miss Jean Mayhew, daughter of R. W. Mayhew, member of parliament for Victoria.4

     In the obituary of Grace Gertrude Mayhew who died 2 September 1967, Grace's daughter, Jean Lawrason was listed as a survivor.5
