I just got this comment…
my name is David Francis McCarron. My uncle was Francis (Frank) McCarron and he was an able seamen on the Regina. My father John McCarron passed away a few years ago and had tried for many years to find as much history about his brother and the crew mates that he was with on that fatal day, with little successes. I have a picture of my uncle with a telegram from the government about his ” missing in action ” as well as a news paper clipping of the ship’s sinking after the the fact. I have tried to find as much information as possible about my uncle and the friends that knew him for many years with little success and when I stumbled on your blog I was quit pleased that others are also searching for answers. If there was any additional information you can send me or redirect me to any additional sites, it would be much appreciated.
Thank you for the insight that you have given me.
Steve is not the one who writes this blog, but that’s not the point.
This blog is a way to share information that you have and are willing to share about those who served on HMCS Regina.
Please take the time to read the articles. If you would like to share information, you can write a comment and I will contact you.
I just wrote Dave…
My name is Pierre.
Steve Hawley is not the one who writes the blog.
He wrote a poem last year and I posted it on my blog about HMCS Regina.
I just wrote another article on my blog.
If you want to scan whatever mementos you have, I could write an article using them.
I have several blogs. This one Lest We Forget is the main one.
Remembering HMCS Regina is just a spin-off I started when John Hawley wrote me last year.
I would be honoured to pay homage to your uncle.
You never know what will come up.
I started my main blog in 2009. It took four years to find the answer.
Best regards, and welcome aboard
