  • Canberra cruises 66-68 Posted on November 7, 2009 03:38 pm Name: Terence Brownlow
    Email: tsubow@earthlink.net

    Comments: I was on 3rd and 4th WestPac cruises in 66 through 68.
    I was in X division. I was a journalist and a part-time disc jockey for KANG radio. I hosted the "jazz-time" radio show from 8:00 - 9:30 pm.
    I have 8x10's of the ship after it was hit by shrapnel.
    The Canberra was a beautiful ship. The visit to Melbourne Australia stands out as a highlight.

    Location: Seattle, Washington

    Comments: Served aboard the Canberra and went on the world cruise. Want to know the date we crossed the dateline at the equator. Plus other dates. I remember the cities and areas that we visited, but not the dates.
    My station was the aft port Mark 56 Gun Fire Control System. My system and gun crew won the "E" for 5 inch guns, three years in a row in Gitmo.
    My time aboard the Canberra was one of the best time of my young life. Great ship and my home for four years. And a great bunch of guys.
    If anyone remembers the cruise, help me with the dates.
    Thanks.

  • Canberra Shell Hit Posted on September 1, 2009 09:17 pm Name: Joseph C Flodman
    Email: jcfsdca@yahoo.com

    Comments: My Father, SCPO, FTC Deland C. Flodman, was aboard at the time of this hit. Mr. Hoppke's bunk was below my father's locker. I e-mailed him personally and he replied to me with his story of this. My mom just gave me a piece of the Canberra with a hole in it, which was given to my father after this incident. I would love to share all the photos my father was given by the Navy which show the path of the shell pieces. I have his cruise book which has a hole through it from this. Also if there is a memorial section to this page, I would love to have my father placed on it. Thank You.

    Comments: I was reminded when I saw a couple of recent address corrections that mine has changed.
    I served in F Div. from Dec. '56 through Aug. '59. I worked on the Weapons Control Station on the 05 level. I've communicated with several shipmates - it's always great to get an email from someone who was on board at the same time. Wanted to get to the reunion this year but again it hasn't worked out. Have a cup of coffee for me, Cleve!
