A Big Yes from the Canadian Merchant Navy Veterans Association!

Dear Michael,

With reference to your request re possible name change involving the Canadian Navy, we veterans of the Canadian Merchant Navy still remember with affection and gratitude the assistance that members of THE R,C.N.and R.C,N. V. R. provided our ships during convoy runs those many years ago.

All that to support the position taken by the members of the N.C.V.A. that the Name ROYAL CANADIAN NAVY be reintroduced, and this centennial year would be an appropriate time.

Sincerely Bruce Ferguson,
National President,
