While no shipbuilding was done in Hamilton, steel from the city was used all over the country for the war effort. This issue of the newsletter, STELCO Flashes Of Interest from May 1942, highlights the use of Hamilton steel in shipbuilding with an image of the corvette K-165, HMCS BATTLEFORD, which was build in Collingwood and launched 15 April 1941.
