I was also there (see 75TH An­niver­sary of ORP Blyskaw­ica) rep­re­sent­ing the HMCS Haida As­so­ci­a­tion and the Friends of Haida as well as the RCN. I had a won­der­ful time and was treated roy­ally by the Pol­ish Navy. I along with the con­tin­gent from Cowes en­joyed a few glasses of wine etc. be­fore, dur­ing and af­ter the Cer­e­monies. :-) The weather turned bit­terly cold at the start of the Novem­ber 25th Cer­e­mony with a gusty wind com­ing off of the Baltic. Still the Pol­ish Naval Drill team car­ried out their pre­ci­sion ri­fle demon­stra­tion and the event went off with­out a hitch. As you men­tioned the Haida was twinned with the Blyskaw­ica in June 2006. A good time was had by all. Un­for­tu­nately other rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the 10th flotilla dur­ing WWII couldn't make it. I was the one who trav­elled the far­thest. Merry Christ­mas and a Happy, Healthy, and Pros­per­ous New Year to you and all of our CTDA mem­bers.
