This is what Able Seaman Jim L’Esperance told his children…

My dad often spoke of Commander Stubbs. He thought the world of him.

I found that was one way to get some information out of him, just ask who was the captain on the Athabaskan and my dad would say what a great man he was.

He said there was a lot of  trouble aboard the ship until Commander Stubbs took command.

Feel free to use any pictures I send especialy for your story on Commander Stubbs.

I know my dad would feel honored to have his picture in a story about that great man.

Tomorrow I will talk about Lieutenant-Commander Stubbs
