strange to see my old boat (AURIGA) three years before I joined her but brought back some great memories of old mates.

Would you happen to have any pictures of the USS Guam when she visited Halifax in 1969? I did have some but they got lost over the years.

Hi Bill: I recall her visit, a beautiful ship, but I didn't get to see her at that time as I lived out of town, others may respond, let me know, regards, Ken.

Amazing to find a picture of Cachalot in Halifax as I was an R.O. on her at the time. I well remember a good run ashore!
