Aconit (formerly HMS Aconite)

... was one of the nine Flower-class corvettes lent by the Royal Navy to the Free French Naval Forces. During World War II, she escorted 116 convoys, spending 728 days at sea. She was awarded the Croix de la Libération and the Croix de Guerre 1939-1945, and was cited by the British Admiralty. Postwar Aconit was briefly used by the French naval school, before being given back to the Royal Navy on 30 April 1947 and renamed HMS Aconite.
Following the war she was used as whaling ship for three different companies from 1947 to 1964.
