Hants Harbour, Canada

#1 Jan 7, 2011
In 1964-1965 I lived in Nanaimo, British Columbia, Canada. I was a Licensed Practical nurse and worked at the Nanaimo Regional General Hospital.

At the time a USN ship came into port every 2 weeks for 5 days. During the day I understood the sailors tested torpedoes at Nanoose Bay a target range not far from Nanaimo. To my knowledge it was the same ship with the same men every 2 weeks. Often they gathered at a Canadian sevices club/legion in the evenings where we all had to be signed in.

I do not know the name or the number of the ship that came in every 2 weeks but I do remember several sailors (Daniels and Fernandez) who were on that ship. The last I heard was that many men aboard this particular ship had signed up to go to Vietnam.I moved back to the east coast of Canada.

Over the years I have often searched for the ship and wondered what happened to the men. It is as if the ship and men are ghosts. Maybe the testing was Classified. No one seems to know much about it and there is realy not much published.

If anyone knows anything about this ship and men would you please let me know what you know. [email protected]
