    I met Cyril at Cornwallis in 1960 where we were sent for new entry training. After graduating HMCS Cornwallis 33 of us, were sent to HMCS Naden as Navel Apprentices. After term 4 (two years), we were allowed to get married and Cyril was best man for my wedding to Grace. After three years we graduated 16 Engineering Artificer’s and 1 Shipwright, and sent to Ships at Halifax and Esquimalt. We kept in touch over the years attending Reunions and emails. Cyril will be sorely missed.
