From CPO2 (Ret’d) Chris Carnall

To the McDonald family….sorry for your loss…..I served with David on HMCS Algonquin when he was in charge of the master seaman and below…..he took charge of the group to ensure that they gave their best for the team, for the ship and for the country and he did this with his humour that came so so naturally to him from his upbringing on the “Rock”…..he love the ocean and love his home, may David have “Fair Winds ‘n Following Seas’ on his journey.
