Sundae Sundays lift morale in HMCS Regina

HMCS Regina Command team serves sundaes

The Command Team of HMCS Regina serves sundaes to the ship’s company from the main steam line during weekly Operation Artemis Sunday’s Sundaes off the coast of India on Feb. 16.

The weekends just became a little sweeter for HMCS Regina as the ship has now started Sundae Sundays during the overseas deployment for Operation Artemis.
Each Sunday evening, Regina’s Command Team serves sundaes with all the fixings to the entire ship’s company from the steam line.
“Sundae Sundays provide a little taste of home for the ship’s company and it gives them something to look forward to every week,” said CPO1 Janet Graham-Smith, Regina’s Coxswain. “Sometimes it is small things that help make a huge difference in the ship’s morale during a long deployment such as Operation Artemis.”
The importance of quality food services cannot be overstated in a Canadian warship at sea. Regina’s galley produces a diverse menu that contains a selection of healthy choices, as well as some “comfort food” to keep sailors both healthy and happy, especially on a long deployment.
“Our cooks are doing a fantastic job of keeping everyone well fed and there is always delicious duff (desserts) available in all of the messes for those sailors who like to indulge their sweet tooth,” said LCdr Gordon Roy, Regina’s Executive Officer. “Well fed sailors are happy sailors and it is the least we can do considering how hard the crew has worked over these many months preparing for Op Artemis.”
