HMCS Carleplace : Probably 1945

NMCS Carleplace

As HMCS Carlplace was commissioned Dec. 12, 1944, this photo was probably taken in 1945.
Herbert Pope is 4th row back, 4th from the left, with a PO's hat, shirt & tie.
The ship's captain was Charles Edmund Wright, RCNVR, who was promoted to LtCdr on 1 July, 1945. There is one LtCdr. in this photo, 3rd from right in the 2nd row. If he is LtCdr Wright, the photo was taken after July 1, 1945.


Thanks to The Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum for this photo.
