Flickr Images of the Commonwealth Section of the Old Garrison Cemetery in Poznan, Poland. Several Canadians are buried here, including six POWs murdered by the Gestapo after the famous "Great Escape" from Stalag Luft III in 1944. HMCS Cornwallis was the main training base for the Royal Canadian Navy in World War II. These images were scanned from a magazine published on the base ca. 1944-45. HMCS Conestoga was a training establishment in Galt (now Cambridge), Ontario for the Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service (aka ‘WRENS’) in World War II. The photographs belonged to the Commanding Officer, Lieutenant-Commander Isabel Macneill. "Trooping the Colour,"a rare and historic public ceremony at the Garrison Grounds next to Citadel Hill in Halifax, Nova Scotia on 27 June 2009. Album of unknown origin featuring Allied vessels of the Second World War. It probably belonged to a member of the Royal Canadian Navy, and was gifted to my mother's family who lived near HMCS Cornwallis, the main RCN training base during the war. An album belonging to an unidentified crew member on board HMCS Labrador, a Royal Canadian Navy icebreaker, in 1955. The mission supported construction of the Distant Early Warning (“DEW”) system in Canada’s far north. A student in my military history class acquired the album on eBay. Gunner Cochrane served in an artillery unit of the Canadian Expeditionary Force in France and Belgium in 1917-18. His service record, personal photos and a bit of archival research were used to create this collection of slides. A cruise from Portland, Maine to Montréal, Québec with Haimark Line's new vessel MV Saint Laurent in June 2015. I was one of two onboard historians.
