  I enjoyed this site very much. Especially the photo of new arrivals at Cornwallis. Reminded me of my 1st day there September 1952.Thanks again for the trip down memory lane.


  Congratulations on an excellent web site! Our Canadian
W.W.II military personnel must never be forgotten. Lest we forget, lest we forget! We must keep Canadian W.W.II Naval History alive! My late father, John Andrew Murza, served as a Submarine Detector-Asdic Operator, in the River Class Frigate H.M.C.S. CARLPLACE K664. This is where I obtained my interest in Canadian W.W.II Naval History; through conversation with my father concerning his naval service. I wish you the best in your future endeavor!

Thank you Dan. Thanks for helping to preserve a very integral part of our history as Canadians. The work you've done here is inspirational and emotionally overwhelming. A fine example of the 'whole' far exceeding the sum of its parts.

  Congratulations on a site that is extremely well researched. It truly conveys the hardships and humour of the RCN's WWII matelots and their outstanding accomplishments. Tom Spowart

  I can't believe my good fortune at coming across this site. I'm sure some of you know more about my dad, Harold Willer, than I do. I would be grateful to hear anything about him. It's hard to believe that he was a telegrapher. It didn't rub off on me. I remember the haircuts though. The clippers really pulled.

  I enjoyed the history and the stories that I read, my Grandfather was a crewman on the Nene during the war (Fred Rodway). I would like to thank all of the men and women that did there duty in WW2, that insured my freedom today. They rose to the occasion to do what they thought was right. Thank-you Colin.

  I recently visited your web site and found it to be a wonderful record of the Nene's history. Petty Officer Walter (Darby) Bond is my wife's Grandfather. I'll be sure to add a few details regarding his life.
