Video - Seasoned Sailors (Set 4 No.2)
A video in the Seasoned
Sailors series features Old Conway R. W. (Bob) Timbrell (1935-1937).
He left Vancouver in 1935 to find his way
in the naval world and first went to the training ship HMS Conway
in the Mersey. The video has brief background shots of Conway.
During WW II he was given command of a
hired yacht (Llanthonthy) and sent to the beaches of Dunkirk to rescue
allied troops. He became the first Canadian naval officer to be decorated
in WW II and was awarded the DSC "for good services in the withdrawal
of Allied Armies from the beaches of Dunkirk". He gives a gripping
account of his three trips to the evacuation beaches. The Dunkirk
film coverage is impressive.
