I found a Picture of a Castle-Class Corvette with the Pennant-Nr. K 396, the name of he Ship should be Hedingham Castle.
In UBoat.net are two Corvettes of the Castle Class, Hedingham Castle I withthe Pennant K 491 and Nr. II with K 529.
What Ship ***** the Pennant K 396?
Can anybody help me?
Regards

Grussen Rolf.
Same ship. As Hedingham Castle (I) she carried the Pennant No K396 and as the Royal Canadian Navy's Orangeville she carried K491. Just to confuse the issue the Gorey Castle carried K529 but then became the Hedingham Castle (II) although it would appear that she retained her K529 Pennant Number.
Hope this helps.

Thank you very match for your help.
I found the Pennants and changes of names in the RN very difficult for me.
