HMCS Margaree

John Hawley sent me this link about a ship.

He had this message to go with it.

The You Tube video (see link below) is a collection of photographs of the RCN (Royal Canadian Navy) St Laurent Class (nicknamed ‘Cadillacs’) HMCS Margaree *DDE/*DDH 230.

This class of ship served in the RCN from the mid 1950s to the late 1980s.

I served onboard HMCS Skeena DDH 207 from 1969 – 1972, HMCS Fraser DDH 233 in 1972 (*you will see several images of HMCS Fraser ‘233’ in moderate seas in several photographs in the later part of this slide show), and HMCS Assiniboine DDH 234 from Fall of 1972 until February 1976.
