Crew members of HMCS Beacon Hill, about 1945-46.
The following information is typed on the reverse of the photo:
" R.C.N. Photo by Sub/Lieut. R. Kemp. RCNVR.
They're glad the war is over, and these ratings aboard the Canadian frigate H.M.C.S. Beacon Hill are showing it in
true Navy style. They are left to right: Able Seaman Fred Morina, Edmonton, Alta.; Leading Seaman Bill Corbot, Winnipeg,
playing the accordion; Able Seaman Reg. Bank, Victoria, B.C.;
and Able Seaman Monty Smith of Vancouver, B.C. "
June, 2020 -- the son of one of the men contacted me,
and corrected the name of Able Seaman Reginald Vincent Bankes.
I purchased this photo on Ebay.
Can you provide details or corrections?
Please email Charlie Dobie.
