I served aboard HMCS ASSINIBOINE with HelAirDet HS-50 Squadron beginning in 1967, and as required through 1969, as well as HMCS BONAVENTURE detachments. I was an Aviation Technician with the rank of Leading Seaman, starting at VX-10 Squadron as an Ordinary Seaman working on both the CS2F-2 Grumman Tracker, and the Sikorsky CHSS-2 Sea King Helicopter. I would really like to hear from any of the guys from the Squadron. This anecdote may help jar somebody’s memory as to my identity. 

 

"In basic training at CFB Cornwallis, my division had five guys whose first name was Brian , so it was decided that we would all use our middle name. My middle name is Charles, shortened becomes “Chuck”. With my last name being Bunn, it’s not hard to see that Chuck Bunn can morph into “Shotgun”, so that is my service nickname among my old wingers."

 

I would love to hear from Jim McEwen, Dick Samuels, (from Cape Breton), Bob Brown , Don Rupert, Jim Ogilvy, and Bob Edwards.
