Cadets from the three local sea cadet corps had the opportunity to tour HMCS ORIOLE while at Port in Hamilton as part or her Great Lake Deployment.
#RCSCCDundas had an amazing tour by Nicholas (one of the ship's sailors). We were onboard for an hour and a half talking rigging and knots and flags and history of the ship and its importance to the Royal Canadian Navy.... so many questions - all answered with pride and a contagious enthusiasm. The cadets were even treated to a tour below decks (not something often offered) much to their delight!
Thank you to the crew of @hmcs.ncsm.oriole for this exciting experience for our cadets!
HMCS ORIOLE is on a Great Lakes deployment along with HMCS GLACE BAY (who will be in Hamilton at the end of the month!). If you have a chance, be sure to see if they are coming to a port near you.
Fair winds... and Thank You, HMCS ORIOLE!
