It appears that Friends of HMCS Haida and the HMCS Haida Association are two separate groups. Will it be possible to get their endorsement?

Indeed they are. Andy Barber, a member of our Board, is also the President of HMCS HAIDA Association which is composed solely of those who once served in HAIDA, although current FOH volunteers can now become associate members. Andy is away over the holidays but monitors his email so I have forwarded my reply to him as well. Our president, Ken Lloyd (ex-army, no less) indicated to me last night that he had no difficulty in endorsing the name "RCN" and reminded me, from his perspective, of the countless army units (RCDs, R22R, etc. etc.) with the prefix Royal.

Incidentally, in reference to your tag line, I started years ago to capitalize the "n" in "Canadian Navy".

Yours aye,

Neil S. Bell
