Thank you for posting this blog. My father was Charles Burgess pictured in the reunion. I never met him and I was adopted . My name was changed to Abbruzzese. I have very few images of my father and know little about him.
Bill told me I could approve the comment he made earlier this week.
Enjoyed the info on Charles and the Athabaskan very much. My Uncle Lcdr George Grivel RCN (ret) sent me a copy of the book Haida years back and told me the torpedo electrician mentioned as saving another of the survivors was in fact Charles.
Please do approve the comment.
