I should have posted about this months ago. It is just one of the things that got dropped as I took a vacation from The VOX. Somehow back then I got myself in communication with the moderator of a Royal Canadian Navy online historical project. I do not know who found who because I have occasionally sent old RCN photos to their museum in Halifax for preservation and display and they have contacted me about these photos or I may have contacted them. Regardless the person who I was in contact with introduced me to For Posterity's Sake a website "dedicated to the men and women of the Royal Canadian Navy and the ships they served in".
I was invited to contribute obituaries and summarized service records for my father and for Carol's father. I did and they are present on the site. My father had collected some group photos of his ships crew and they were also very pleased to get these.
If you have old photos of RCN ships, pictures of relatives who served, or their obituaries please let me know and I will help you get digital copies displayed in this memorial. I can also help you find war-time service records if they would be of interest. Anyways - a great tribute to those who sailed for Canada.
Look for people to be standing in this scene in about 48 hours.
Just thought that I would throw a photo up here showing the delicious white cake with caramel icing - a family tradition, baked by Bronwen.
I am not sure that she needed help blowing out the candle but everybody wanted to pitch in.
