Royal Canadian Navy : Edmund Ferris

106 PHOTOS IN THIS SECTION BY EDMUND FERRIS

Edmund Ferris, early 2000's

Edmund Ferris, 1944-45

Edmund Ferris served as a seaman (Radar III) on both HMCS Cobalt and HMCS Ontario during WWII. After the war he went to work as an autobody man at Lakehead Motors in Port Arthur (now Thunder Bay, Ontario) and in the 1960's started his own autobody business, "Ferris and Marsh Autobody".

Now, at the age of 92 (November, 2017) he is a member and active participant in the Thunder Bay Naval Association, HMCS Griffin.

Most of the photos in his collection are duplicates of the official photos shown in the Ken Johnson section and the Russell Hodgkin section of this website. I've shown only photos which are missing from those two sections, as well as about 20 taken by Edmund (or with his camera by various friends). Scans are courtesy of Edmund's son, Robert Ferris.

Locations: Ceylon, Egypt, Hong Kong, Port Arthur (Ontario), Scotland,

Ships Shown: HMCS Cobalt (K124), HMCS Ontario, HMCS Pictou (K146), oiler Wave King. Section revised August 6, 2018.
