Submarine Ojibwa Leaves Halifax for Last Time.

Submariners salute Ojibwa as she leaves Halifax.

Ordinarily the send-off of a ship on her final journey is a somber occasion. This was not the case today in Halifax as retired submariners gathered to send the Cold War submarine HMCS Ojibwa on her way to her final home as a museum in Port Burwell, Ontario. Instead of sadness there were smiles and toasts all round as the first, and now the last, Canadian Oberon submarine left Halifax. Retired and current submariners were on hand to see her leave harbour for the last time.. Another Oberon class submarine escapes the scrap yard and lives on as a piece of history.
Bravo Zulu to Port Burwell Ontario.
Cheers and keep reading.
