Diesel Boats Forever - Subs and Submariners of the RCN

 

This page is for information on the RCN's submarines.  Being a Skimmer, I'm not very knowledgeable on the subject of our subs and will depend on submissions from those who are qualified to speak about them - mainly our submariners. Photos of the subs and their crews will appear on the pages for each sub. What you will find here are course / group photos, specific sub related links and other info. To submit photos, stories, links, sub related announcements, etc, send me an EMAIL.
