"H.M.C.S. Wallaceburg was my second ship. I joined her in mid-April of 1945 and stayed until we laid her up in Sydney, N.S. in late August of 1945. These pictures were displayed or taken at a Reunion in the town of Wallaceburg, ON in November of 1993, almost 50 years to the day of her visit to the town enroute from Port Arthur to the Atlantic:" - Jim McAlister
