In due course on the ship's details, though it is available in a variety of sources. Here's one. HMCS Gatineau (H 61) of the Royal Canadian Navy - Destroyer of the E class - Allied Warships of WWII - uboat.net
My chap was part of her company and responsible for encoding and decoding all traffic.
One of the most interesting things that he showed me was a letter dated May 31 and passed by the Censor on June 5, 1944. He writes to his mother that all ranks have been ordered to be clean shaven. The worry was that if they were in the water with oil burning around them, it would have horrible results. So, he followed orders and shaved, then he mailed his red hair beard home to his mother tied in a ribbon. Sweet!
Apparently, the Number 2 who is seated to the left of the Captain in the front row had a beard as you can see. He, however, did not shave. When questioned about that by those who enjoyed being hairsuited, he replied that the thoughts of burning oil on the water did not worry him. He intended to go down with the ship.
So there you have a bit of the story. I have a few great pictures to scan and share along with this story of shipping in St. John's Harbour. They are small, but I will scan them at 1200 dpi and they should be quite adequate.
For anyone wanting this image in higher rez, I will gladly provide it. I have it stored in 55meg format right now. I was a bit over zealous scanning an 8 by 10 at 1200. Nearly locked up my pre-historic computer.
So, I am back to court mounting a vet's medals to go into a shadow box. Nice GV CD in the group.
