Message from Sherry Pringle

Athabaskan Families–please note.

I am doing a revision of « All The Ship’s Men; HMCS Athabaskan’s Untold Stories ». I currently have ten new stories from veterans and family members for a new edition. If you have a loved one who was onboard GO7 when she sunk, and you wish to have their tales included, this is a golden opportunity. I can’t think another such occasion will arrive in our lifetime.

Please contact me if interested and I will get back to you.

Pictures of HMCS Haida taken in 2011

I visited the ship that saved Norris John Legh in 2011.

Little did I know back then that my interest in HMCS Haida would be rekindled in 2016 by someone who left a comment…

My father was one picked up by her sister ship, just wanted to thank you for all you are doing in the memory of those who served, my father’s name Norris John Legh.

Little did I know that Michael’s father was on that picture in the book page 141.

Norris John Legh

Little did I know that he was also in more pictures in the book.

Especially this one with the wrong caption identifying him as Stu Kettles…

This  is  the  best  book  review  written about  Unlucky Lady – The  Life  & Death  of HMCS  Athabaskan.

It was  never  written  but told by Norris  John  Legh to his  son Michael.

Norris John Legh was aboard the Unlucky  Lady  on April  29th, 1944. He could  have  been  among  the 128  sailors  who never came  back.

He was lucky to survive.

Roll along

Tune :- Roll Along, Covered Wagons

Roll along, Wavy Navy, roll along
Roll along, Wavy Navy, roll along
If they ask us who we are
We’re the RNVR —
Roll along, Wavy Navy, roll along

Oh, we joined for the chance to go to sea
Yes, we joined for the chance to go to sea
But the first two years or more
We spent marching on the shore
Roll along, Wavy Navy, roll along

Oh, we joined for the payment and the fun
Yes, we joined for the payment and the fun
But of payment there is none
And the fun is yet to come
Roll along, Wavy Navy, roll along

Oh, we joined for the glory of it all
Yes, we joined for the glory of it all
But the good old RN
Made us change our minds again
Roll along, Wavy Navy, roll along

And when at last they sent us out to sea
Yes, when at last they sent us out to sea
There were several things we saw
That were not brought up before
Roll along, Wavy Navy, roll along

Man you gun, Seaman Gunner, man your gun
Man you gun, Seaman Gunner, man your gun
Load it up with shot and shell
And we’ll blow the Huns to hell
Roll along, Wavy Navy, roll along

Now before we pull up hook and sail away
Yes, before we pull up hook and sail away
If you want some good advice
Before you join, think once or twice
Roll along, Wavy Navy, roll along
