E-mail/Letter Received from a Genealogy Researcher & Book Author
To the Oshawa Naval Veterans Club
Good Day Gentleman:
Iím looking for your help with questions on Canadian sailors that served with the Canadian Navy that made the Ultimate Sacrifice in WW2.
Iím looking for pictures of any sailors and any short bioís of sailors that made the Ultimate Sacrifice in WW2?
A little background information for your meeting; Iím doing research for three books.
Book #1 - Royal Canadian Navy permanent force - 397 sailors made the ultimate sacrifice
Book #2 - Royal Canadian Navy Reserve (to be called up in emergency) - 237 sailors made the ultimate sacrifice
Book #3 - Royal Canadian Navy Volunteer Reserve (to be called up in emergency) - 1509 sailors made the ultimate sacrifice
World War two has been over for 65 years and we are about to see the passing of another generation. Within the next five years we will lose almost all our veterans who served in the Canadian Navy. These men and women served with the 2143 men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice serving with the three naval groups.
These books will list every Canadian Naval Sailors who made the ultimate sacrifice serving Canada. It will contain the following

Thank you in advance for all your help.
