Battle of the Atlantic

Last night 50 veterans of the Battle of the Atlantic were honoured at a gala dinner at the Canadian War Museum in Ottawa.   My Dad was invited but couldn't make it unfortunately due to some recent health challenges.  Last year he was able to attend but I wasn't as I was on my way to Paris that evening.   Unlike most galas where the focus is on the young and the beautiful I was more aware of the Veterans who served our country so valiantly all those years ago.  Here are some of my favourite photos.   All photos were taken with Fuji XT1 and the FujiFilm EF42 flash which seemed to work well enough.
