James DeWolf signs the Petition!

His father is the late Vice-Admiral Harry DeWolf, Canada's most distinguished naval commander of the Second World War. Here is his obituary that was printed in the New York Times.

James DeWolf accompanied Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall on their visit to Canada last year when they visited DeWolf's famous tribal class destroyer (now a floating museum in Toronto/Hamilton), which was renown as "the fightingest ship in the Royal Canadian Navy".

Admiral DeWolf left funds to Halifax in his will. His ashes were scattered over the Bedford Basin and Admiral DeWolf Park bears his name there on the Bedford waterfront.

Admiral DeWolf is a legend in the Canadian naval community, and we are honoured that his son would like to see a restoration of the navy's traditional name, no doubt in memory of his late father who served in the Royal Canadian Navy.
