The Museum and Memorial
The story of The Alberni Project and the HMCS ALBERNI Museum and Memorial is an interesting story of its own.
A Remembrance Program and Museum operated by
The Alberni Project Society which brings attention to the lives and stories of Canadians who served with Canada's military from the Great War of 1914 - 1918 to the present day.
The Canadian Flower Class corvette and the German Type VII submarine crossed paths in the English Channel in 1944.

Discover - Reflect - Remember
The HMCS ALBERNI Museum and Memorial is dedicated to preserving the memory of those who served onboard the corvette HMCS ALBERNI during WWII. This Canadian warship was sunk by the German submarine U480 off the Isle of Wight, with the loss of 59 brave men.
Our mission is to honour their memory and through
this focus, we also pay tribute to all the sailors, soldiers,
and aviators who have served and continue to serve our
country. The artefacts and stories of these individuals
offer visitors a glimpse of the selfless sacrifice that has
defined Canada's past, present, and future.
