Edmund Ferris, 1944-45

Edmund Ferris served as a seaman (Radar III) on both HMCS Cobalt and HMCS Ontario during WWII. After the war he went to work as an autobody man at Lakehead Motors in Port Arthur (now Thunder Bay, Ontario) and in the 1960's started his own autobody business, "Ferris and Marsh Autobody".

Now, at the age of 92 (November, 2017) he is a member and active participant in the Thunder Bay Naval Association, HMCS Griffin.

Most of the photos in his collection are duplicates of the official photos shown in the two sections above. I've shown only those which are missing in the above sections, as well as about 20 taken by Edmund (or with his camera by various friends). Scans are courtesy of Edmund's son, Robert Ferris.
