Did the same job on "Calgary" of ED's in '58, awful job as the whistle leaked steam which tarnished the brass and scalded the polisher ( no Brasso, colza oil and bath-brick ) as well as two full brass bridge wing telegraphs, standard compass and D/F loops.

a bit of negotiating, followed by a lick of grey paint on the D/F loops, saw one job less on the Fanad.

You needed to keep the old girl looking smart after (?) years, Mike, as she had a 'date' when she got home, I seem to remember. I was lucky on my first trip as there wasn't an abundance of brass on churned out, wartime Park boats, my one being 'Cambray'.

Her namesake to be was in a very different class altogether.


Calgary was laid down on 15 June 1991 by MIL Davie Shipbuilding at Lauzon and launched on 28 August 1992. She was commissioned into the Canadian Forces on 12 May 1995 and carries the hull classification symbol 335
