In the early 80's the Rescue Unit would help to commemorate Battle of the Atlantic with sail by with naval officer Charlie Kedge, at the wheel is Chris Hamel and Peter Plant on his left.


The Battle of the Atlantic was Canada's longest military engagement of the Second World War, lasting from September 1939 to May 1945. This battle was bravely fought by the men and women of the Canadian Merchant Navy, the Royal Canadian Navy and the Royal Canadian Air Force. More than 4,600 courageous service men and women lost their lives at sea.
