Ships Officers HMCS Algonquin
On June 18th, 1944 H.M.C.S. ALGONQUIN
returned to the assault area in Normandy, as part
of the escort for the Battleship H.M.S. RODNEY.
Aboard, as passengers, were the Commander of
the First Canadian Army, Lieut.General H.D.G.
Crerar, C.B., D.S.O., and his staff. The occasion
was looked upon as historic - the first time a
Canadian Army Commander had proceeded to
enemy territory in a Canadian warship. The
General was accompanied by 22 Staff Officers
and several Army Press representatives. Here
Captain Piers and General Crerar keep a sharp
lookout on Algonquin's bridge while enroute to
France.
Lt. Commander Piers addresses his men on the eve of the D-Day
invasion. " I have just received a message from Captain "D".
Tomorrow is D-Day! There will be no leave from now until the
action is over. We cannot take a chance on anyone passing
information to their girlfriends or wives which might end up in
enemy hands. We have been chosen to be in the spearhead of
the invasion, (the crew lets out a sigh ...) I have something to add
to this. HMCS Algonquin will be the point on the end of the spear."

Medallion by Former President of the Navy
League Earle Corn following a very interesting
talk on the Navy League.
