Permission to come aboard. Born Glasgow, joined the MOB when they were needing them not feeding them. Served North and South Atlantic convoy escort. Joined the other boys in blue on demob and did my 30 in Greater Manchester where only the sparrows cough. Support the best football team in the world but for the time being shall remain nameless. Shipped out to the Land of the Maple Leaf in 1981 and now live in Ontario. Canada has always come to the aid of the mother country in times of peril. In 1939 for example she had a fleet of six river class destroyers. That was it. By the end of that conflict she was the third largest navy in the world. One of the greatest fighting destroyers of WW11 was the Tribal class HMCS Haida. She had a great fighting record with the 10th Destroyer Flotilla out of Plymouth and did equal work in the Korean conflict. Toronto purchased her and she was a great tourist attraction. I have been aboard her so many times I should qualify for a Canadian Naval Pension. She has now been moved to Hamilton as she requires plenty of money being spent on her to keep afloat. Now where shall I hang me mick?
