- Jun 30, 2008Today's group site picture got me thinking ...
How easy for me to pose for a photo op and make light of the moment,
but in a way that is a tremendous dis-service to our naval
We in the 41st have been extremely fortunate; we were guests at the
2007 School of the Sailor at Amhertsberg in honour of the 41st's role
as emergency fill-ins during the Battle of Lake Erie. We have also
had several additional moments to be on the boats since.
I must profess to the utmost admiration to our fine comrades in the
navy. Theirs' is a tricky craft that requires considerable skill and
knowledge; something that they seek to enhance at every School.
We have seen first hand the crews of the HMS Auld Alliance, HMS Dawn
Star, HMS Rolette, HMS Witch of A'Berg and HM Schooner Ferret at work
in trying conditions. What tremendous skill they possess!
I offer my sincere gratitude and appreciation to our hard working
naval folks as they prepare for their 2008 school at Discovery
Tom Fournier, Captain
41st Regiment of Foot
