HMCS Qu'Appelle & Boy Scouts,
Midway Island, 1968.
Bob Berbeck says: "Qu'Appelle and Saskatchewan went to the far east in 1968. Prior to departing we had BC Scout
House send an International letter of introduction to all the places we went.
There were a total of 10 Scout Masters on the two ships. They usually gave us a tour of their city or in the case of
Midway, their island, and we gave them a tour of our ships.
When we were in Hong Kong they took us places that I would have been terrified to have gone alone."
The following photos were taken in Midway Island with their Scout troop.
There are five Scout Leaders, two American and three Canadian.
