During our 2019 season, Larry Belzac, a former photographer with the Royal Canadian Air Force, visited HMCS Ojibwa. We were able to fill in some memories that had been lost to the demon rum during a previous visit in 1966. Here is the story in his own words:
Benefit of Integration
Thanks to the integration of the Armed Forces, I was posted to the Navy Photo Section in Halifax, NS. I had the honour of being one of the first pigeons (Air Force guy) to grace the halls of any Navy Photo Section if not the Navy itself.
Duty Photo Assignment:
The sailors were a good bunch of guys and they made me feel at home; but, I cannot remember any of their names now. However, I won’t forget my time there! Come meal time we all ate in the area where the photographs were taken. I was still on standby to photograph part of one of the engines as soon as they were able to shut it down.
