I am trying to identify the ship (in the middle) that is indicated on this Canadian torpedoman's record of service. Can anyone assist?

HMCS Niobe. Depending upon when he was on her would reveal if she was still sea going or relegated to Depot ship status.

His record (appears to be WWII) states that he saw 9 mos at sea but all of the ships listed appear to be possibly shore-based facilities during WWII: Cornwallis, Stadacona, Peregrine, Niobe, Shelburne and Queen. He has a torpedoman's rating on his uniform and was granted the Atlantic Star and clasp. He went in in Dec. 1943. Bit of a mystery. His name was Joseph Edward Robinson.
