Rear-Admiral Fairbain, RN (FOIC) Milford Haven arrives to inspect HMCS TRENTONIAN in October 1944.
The navy, stooped in traditions has a ceremony when receiving an Admiral aboard. The side is piped, orders called out and the ship’s officers stand ready. With all the ceremony the Admiral still has to climb the rope ladder up TRENTONIAN’s side, just like any other sailor.
