I knew I had some knowledgeable friends…

Comment from Garry…

The top photo showing Alfred Frenette on the forecastle (fo’c’s’le) of a ship is definitely a River Class destroyer. The problem is which one.

The were 14 of them – I will list them here with the year the were commissioned into the RCN

HMCS Assiniboine (1939)
HMCS Chaudiere (1943)
HMCS Fraser (1936)
HMCS Gatineau (1943)
HMCS Kootenay (1943)
HMCS Margaree (1940)
HMCS Ottawa H60 (1938)
HMCS Ottawa H31 (1943)
HMCS Qu’Appelle (1944)
HMCS Restigouche (1938)
HMCS Saguenay (1931)
HMCS Saskatchewan (1943)
HMCS Skeena (1931)
HMCS St. Laurent (1937)

There is nothing in the photo to narrow down which ship. However, if the photos were taken prior to 1936 then we can narrow it down to either HMCS Saguenay or HMCS Skeena.

    • Garry Weir is such a nice person.

      He does not do this for the money.
      That tells a lot about someone.

      Many people put such Websites and then add a donate section to cover their cost.

      That tells a lot about someone.
