Welcome on the site of Robert Grenier...

As there is not enough material on the aircraft carriers of the Royal Canadian Navy  in the years of postwar period, and since I had the honour and pleasure of serving on 2 different aircraft carriers at the end of the years ’40 and at the beginning of the years 50 , let me show you with the aid of texts  and some photographs of what this looked like!

Here is the context:
1945 marks the end of the second world war. Between 1950 and 1953, Canada gets involved in the conflict of the war of Korea. Magnificent was chosen as aircraft carrier being  used for the intensive training of  canadian and americain pilots.

In this context, you will understand that every takeoff and every landings were "at high risk". Here is therefore what this looked like on an aircraft carrier in this period.
The FORUM link contains many new articles, we invite you to read them, very interesting.

Wish you a good visit
