The EDITOR: My late, great uncle, Morris O’Hara was Chief Officer on “Lady Nelson” when she was torpedoed at her Castries berth on Mar 10, 1942 and was subsequently appointed her Master after her conversion to Canada’s only hospital ship in WWII.
It was therefore of great personal interest to learn from this article that one of Lady Nelson’s propellers and partial shaft have been retrieved from the harbour bottom.
As my wife and I will be touching at Castries on or about January 5, 2019 whilst on a cruise aboard “Viking Sea”, I was wondering if it might be possible for us to “visit” the propeller, assuming it is on public view?
We’d very much like to have photos with it for the family. (Brtian Uloth)
