Engine Room Fire in HMCS Protecteur

A richly deserved series of honours and awards. I am reliably informed that this was probably the finest piece of seamanship displayed within the RCN since World War 2.

BZ to all aboard.

I can't wait to read the stories and lessons learned.
I am disappointed to see some left off the recognition lists.  The EO, CMO and CHT for starters.  They would have had a major role in the actual DC fight for PROs life...
As with any situation that arises, not all that deserve offical recognition get it.

In my opinion the HTs that made the crappers on the jungle deck are the real heroes. Had some of the most plesant movements of my life in the gentle NELY trade winds off the north coast of Oahu.
