HMCS Okanagan lives on--remnants and memories
I recently made a thrilling visit to George's museum. He has hundreds of artifacts from Allied and German submarines and ships, uniforms, etc.
One room is partitioned off, and accessible only through a Fleet Boat-sized doorway.
Inside it are George's most valued Canadian submarine pieces, including this gorgeous clinometer salvaged from HMCS Okanagan, the last-built Canadian Oberon-class boat. She lives on in the memories of her crew, and is brought to life by George's enthusiasm.
