On April 15th I had the pleasure of presenting “Our Navy”, a powerpoint presentation made by the Naval Association of Canada as part of its outreach program. The purpose of the presentation is to inform our fellow Canadians about the role and structure of the Royal Canadian Navy.
My hosts were the Royal Society of St. George, and the Royal Commonwealth Society. The setting was perfect–the Royal Vancouver Yacht Club overlooking English Bay. A spirited discussion and questions followed.
RVYC was a fitting location, as the NOA of BC was founded in 1919 by RN veterans who had been members of the club; and the NOABC is one of the branches of today’s Naval Association of Canada.
