In the event, only two were commissioned in the USN, the remaining eight were commissioned in the RN and RCN. Twelve River-class frigates were built in Australia for the RAN (four to a modified design), the last of which is, preserved as a museum ship at the Queensland Maritime Museum in Brisbane, Australia. After World War II they found employment in many other navies the world over; several RCN ships were sunk as breakwaters.
