Herm Sulkers and Jim L’Esperance

This one is for you Ed.

Lest We Forget

Herm and Jim were often seen together in pictures I have about the HMCS Athabaskan.

Herm and Jim were both made prisoners on April 29, 1944, and we see them on the ship that brought them back to Canada in 1945.

Jim is in the red rectangle. Herm is of the left just beside him.

Jim L’Esperance’s son sent it back in 2009 or 2010.

  1. Hi Pierre, I follow your site and i figured you would be interested in my information. The unidentified sailor, AKA “the good looking guy”, is actually my Dad! His name is Ernie R. Anderson. He was gunner on the Athabaskan the night it sank, but he is not listed.

    Thanks Pierre!
