In 1967 or so the Canadian Army, RCAF and RCN were merged, into one organization. The former naval equipment, ships, helicopters, auxiliary vessels, port facilities formed the "Maritime Command". In the last year or so the Army, RCAF and RCN were restored as separate organizations.
Personally, I don't care what happens -- except I would like to have the subcategories under one consistent organizational scheme.
I don't think there were any vessels commissioned, and retired during the "Maritime Command" period. I think all vessels were at least briefly part of the RCN. --Geo Swan (talk) 03:34, 18 December 2011 (UTC)
- The Maritime Command has the heritage of the old RCN and has been renamed RCN recently, so I don't see any problem with this category and that all RCN's ships (pre-CF and in the CF) falls under it. I have created Category:Royal Canadian Navy ships which is under both Category:Naval ships of Canada and Category:Royal Canadian Navy, so the problem you mentioned is solved.
