Royal Canadian Navy : HMCS Ontario, 1945.
HMCS Ontario at Greenock, Scotland.
Marked "Scotland" in margin.
Labelled "Newfie" in the bottom margin of the print. This is one of several similar. Photo probably by Edmund Ferris.
Unknown pile, unknown location.
Written on back is "Mausoleum in Cairo, Egypt".
Kathiresan Kovil (Temple) in Colombo, Ceylon (Sri Lanka). It is similar to several photos in
the Ceylon series seen in the Ken Johnson collection.
Crew assembled on the quarterdeck of HMCS Ontario, with dockyard buildings in the
background. I don't know if this is one of
Edmund Ferris's photos or a print he purchased.
Unknown aircraft carrier, flag number 66 or 55 or 56 or 65.
Unknown men in a boat. Unknown location.
This may be Hong Kong. The people on the barge may be painting the side of the ship.
Many thanks to Robert Ferris
for sending me these photos from the collection of his father, Edmund Ferris.
Can you provide names, details or corrections?
Please email Charlie Dobie.
