Thank you so much for this picture. It confirmed what our group was thinking. Thanks again.

I was on board CVS-39 from 04/1963 to 03/1965.

I think you'll find this photo dates from July 6, 1962. Although, it is true that The Champ visited Halifax several times in the 1960s. This photo was taken at the Ocean Terminals dock. The ship was built by the Norfolk Naval Shipyard.

Ed is correct, other photos I have of her, same berth, are clearly from 1960. This one is taken in 1962 (Summer leave June probably).Rgds, Ken Watson
