WEDNESDAY, JAN., 29, 2020@11:27, IN COWARDICE CANADA/1993 TO 2020

A Hamiltonian was on board the Titanic, and was one of the fatalities.

Dr. Alfred Paine, pictured above,was a passenger in second class. A single man, he was returning to Canada. As was a common pattern of behavior, Dr. Pain became a friend and protector of one of the single ladies also travelling across the Atlantic in one of the big passenger liners.

Marion Wright was the young lady whom Dr. Paine befriended and looked after her interests. She was on her way to Oregon to meet her finance. Marion was possessed of beautiful soprano singing voice.

After dinner, just a few hours before the Titanic grazed the iceberg, there was a traditional hymn singing. Marion Wright and Dr. Paine were in attendance – ironically, Marion was chosen to sing “Lead Kindly Light” a hymn written in the aftermath of a shipwreck.

Naval Matters

70-years ago today…

Palpable hits:

USS George E. Badger, “flush deck” Clemson class destroyer, sank U-613 (KrvKpt. Helmut Köppe commanding) with depth charges South of the Azores.

Grumman Avenger aircraft from the escort carrier USS Bogue (Capt. Joseph Brantley Dunn, USN commanding) sank U-527 (Kptlt. Herbert Uhlig commanding) with depth charges in the mid-Atlantic.

Near misses:

HMS Newfoundland, Colony class light cruiser, flagship of the 15th Cruiser Squadron, was torpedoed by U-407 (Kptlt. Ernst-Ulrich Brüller commanding) off Syracuse, Sicily and hit in the stern. Newfoundland lost her rudder, but was able to reach Malta, steering using her propellers. After repairs, Newfoundland went on to serve with the Far East Fleet and was present at Tokyo Bay on 2 Sept 1945 when the instrument of surrender was signed aboard USS Missouri.

U-466 (Oblt. Gerhard Thäter commanding) was attacked by American B-18 Bolo and B-24 Liberator bombers East of French…

Bien que la lutte anti-sous-marine à été négligée durant la période 1919/1939 (faute de volonté et/ou de moyens), la construction de navires de protection contre les submersibles s’est poursuivit notamment en Grande-Bretagne qui construit plusieurs classes de sloop sans compter des armed trawler ou chalutiers armés.

FolkestoneJack's Tracks

The corvette Karjala is one of the museum ships on the Aura, moored alongside the minelayer Keihässalmi, a short walk away from Forum Marinum. The Karjala was one of the first Finnish built warships after World War II along with its classmate the Turunmaa, constructed between 1963 and 1968. I took a look on board and was astonished by the fascinating story waiting to be discovered…

The Karjala

Although the Turunmaa class gas-turbine powered gunboats were originally designed to suit the needs of the Finnish archipelago their state of the art electronics and propulsion systems drew much international attention. The design was seen as a terrific export opportunity for the Wärtsilä shipyard, but despite talks with Ethiopia and Venezuela this led nowhere. The authorities did not grant Wärtsilä an export licence, fearing how the Soviet Union would view Finland muscling in on their territory.

The Karjala had a massive crew…

In my recent posting on the first official Canadian naval visit to Charlottetown I noted that HMCS Niobe was in the harbour for Coronation Day 1911. When I wrote that post I was surprised that there seemed to be no photos of the ship while in Charlottetown harbour as it was a major event in the harbour history.

Several readers have responded to fill the void. Greg Gallant, a collector of PEI militaria, generously loaned me two albums of material on the Niobe. He had a relative who was a member of the Niobe’s crew and who went on to other naval involvement. Greg has identified a number of other Islanders who were on the ship including…
