A total of 1,797 RCN and 1,578 Canadian merchant marine men and women were lost worldwide and 752 RCAF personnel were lost during maritime operations. The Canadian Army and Royal Canadian Air Force lost another 380 men at sea when the ships carrying them were sunk during the war.

It is my understanding that by 1945 the RCN was the world's third largest navy - and ALL Canadian servicemen were volunteers. Niner's list above is salutary. They had put on a pretty good show in 14-18 as well in spite of having Halifax blown down round their ears.

In 1964 my ship was sent to Liverpool to put on a show for B of Atlantic Sunday. The speaker was Monkey Stephenson, the Terror of Tobermory - something of a privilege to be addressed by such a marvellous man.
 
1980, Scylla, we took part in the Battle of the Atlantic parade in Liverpool.
I ws in the Guard and I'd like to say we were lashed up, but it wouldn't be true. There was a crowd lining the route, but it wasn't big.

Huh!

We were well treated in Halifax in 78 and again in Esqimalt/Nanaimo/Vancouver in 85. Canada is one of the better runs ashore!
