Last month I got this message about paying homage to a sailor.
My husband’s Uncle was William Donald McCrindle. He is one of the missing men from that fatal night. We are going to France next week and making our way to Roscoff, Isle de Batz and area by end of month. He will be the first of his family to go to Donald’s final resting place. Donald was very close to my husband’s mother and his last letter was to her. Overwhelming to finally have family go.

Whenever I feel I have written too much about the Fallen on Lest We Forget, I just visit this Website.
Remembrance Day 2018 will remember all the sailors who were aboard HMCS Athabaskan G07 on April 29th, 1944.
These two photos were shared by Paul Sulkers whose father was Herm Sulkers.
Paul had a mission to identify all these sailors. Many were identified since 2009. Everytime someone would write a comment about his or her relative I would go full speed ahead to find more about him.
This was the case of Leading Stoker Ralph Cummins yesterday.
My grandfather was POW on this ship. I am not sure of his position, his name was Ralph Cummins and I am positive he is #9 in the group photo. I can’t tell you how it touches my heart to see these pictures.
