On Nov. 24, the Naval Association of Canada – Vancouver Island (NAC-VI) branch held its monthly luncheon meeting and celebrated the 102nd birthday of one of its members – Peter Chance, Commander (Cmdr) Royal Canadian Navy (RCN) (Ret’d), whose birthday fell coincidentally on that same day. Peter is a well-known and admired Battle of the Atlantic veteran who actively participates in naval affairs.

During the event, Cmdr Mike Stefanson, Commanding Officer of HMCS Venture, addressed the audience on the newly established Naval Officer Training Group.

Also during the event Commander RCN (Ret’d) Steve White, NAC-VI Branch President, presented Cmdr Stefanson with a kisbee ring from the previous namesake training organization.
