NEWS RELEASE -- H.M.C.S. "PRINCE ROBERT": Warships of the Royal Navy and Royal Canadian Navy escorting a large convoy to the United Kingdom, recently rode out a heavy sea bombing. The above photograph was taken from the bridge of H.M.C.S. "PRINCE ROBERT" by Lieutenant H.J. Mott, Canadian Naval Photographer, and shows a glider bomb released by a Heinkel 177 falling into the sea close to a Canadian corvette. PRINCE ROBERT, Canadian anti-aircraft cruiser, commanded by Captain A.M. Hope, R.C.N., of Halifax sailed up to the convoy on a Sunday afternoon just as 32 enemy planes, some of them carrying glider bombs, set in to attack the convoy. The planes fled after a battle that lasted nearly three hours. All ships and their escorts reached the United Kingdom safely.
