  • Description

    SYNOPSIS: There's rain and fog at Halifax to welcome the newest addition to the Royal Canadian Navy's Atlantic coast fleet. She's the Restigouche ---- a twenty-nine-hundred ton destroyer-escort. The Restigouche was commissioned at Canadian Vickers Limited in Montreal a week ago. Now -- under the command of Commander John McDowell -- she's ready to begin trials and working-up exercises next week. But first, civilian inspection.

    Just before the new Canadian vessel steamed into Halifax, the city welcomed another naval ship, a visitor from the United States. She's the U.S.S. Norfolk -- tying up in Halifax harbour for a weekend courtesy call. A busy day on the Halifax waterfront -- and the misty weather doesn't keep the visitors away.
