Canadian Forces Southeast Asia and the Pacific 1939-45. Canadian naval and special forces participated in various capacities in the Pacific and South-East Asia. The cruisers HMCS Ontario and HMCS Uganda, along with the armed merchant cruiser HMCS Prince Robert were assigned to theBritish Pacific Fleet. HMCS Uganda was in theatre at the time. HMCS Ontario arrived to support the post-war operations in the Philippines, Hong Kong and Japan.
Various Canadian special forces also served in Southeast Asia including the "Sea Reconnaissance Unit", a team of navy divers tasked to spearhead assaults across the rivers in Burma. Conditions aboard HMCS Uganda , compared to ships in the United States Navy, strict discipline, and the inability to display a separate Canadian identity, had contributed to poor morale and resentment amongst the crew. Of the 907 crew members, 605 did so on 7 May 1945. This decision, which had legal impact, was relayed to Canada and thence to the British government. Reacting to the angry British response, the Canadians agreed to stay on station until replaced.
This happened on 27 July 1945, when HMS Argonaught joined the British Pacific Fleet and Uganda departed for Esquimalt arriving on the day of the Japanese surrender.
