IN 1940 the Canadian RCMP ST ROCH set out from Vancouver on a secret mission through the Northwest Passage. On this voyage, the ST ROCH combined its normal supply mission with a deliberate assertion of Canadian sovereignty over the Arctic. Due to heavy ice conditions, the ship spent two winters frozen in Arctic waters, finally reaching Halifax on October 11, 1942. The voyage claimed the life of one crew member. The ST ROCH was the first ship to complete the voyage through the Northwest Passage from Pacific to Atlantic. In the summer of 1944 it became the first ship to traverse the Arctic in both directions when it crossed the Northwest Passage again, this time from Halifax to Vancouver. The ST ROCH was built in 1928 by the Burrard Dry Dock Company in North Vancouver.
The ST ROCH is a 1:72 scale model of wood construction and comes complete with all required fittings.
