The Vancouver Naval Veterans Association calls on the government to restore the Royal Canadian Navy!
To All Concerned:
A few Months ago, I responded to a similar call related to this issue.
At this time, I am not able to recover my comments, saved on my computer, however, I can repeat in essence, the gist of that response.
The Canadian Navy received the 'Royal' title from H.M. King George V, in 1911.
So what authority removed that title?
In my way of thinking, the only source of authority able to remove that title, would have to have been made by a reining Monarch!
That never happened.
So the question I ask is simply this: Who was able to have the 'ROYAL' removed from the "Royal Canadian Navy", after the title had been conferred upon it, by the King of England, the reining Monarch at that time?
On behalf of my Executive, and the general membership of the Vancouver Naval Veterans Association, we support the move to restore the 'ROYAL' title to the Royal Canadian Navy.
