  History  
 
Claes Johnny27/02/2008At 21.27 hours on 8 Aug, 1944, the Ezra Weston in convoy EBC-66 was hit by one torpedo from U-667 about eight miles off Trevose Head, Cornwall. The sole escort of the convoy, HMCS Regina (K 234) (Lt J.W. Radford, RCNR) turned and slowed down to pick up survivors, thinking that the merchant had been mined. The U-boat fired a Gnat at the corvette, which blew up and sank within 30 seconds. One officer and 27 men were lost.

The commander and 65 crew members were picked up by the British armed trawler HMS Jaques Morgand and the British landing ship HMS LCT-644 (SLt L.G. Read), but two men died of injuries before the vessel reached Padstow, Cornwall.
