Canadian submarine HMCS OKANAGAN has now joined her sister British submarine HMS OLYMPUS at the Port Maitland graveyard. In the foreground is OKANAGAN. She was equipped with the new type sonar dome but it was removed after retirement. In the background is HMS OLYMPUS. She still has the old type sonar dome which confirms that she is the OLYMPUS.
