HMCS Saskatchewan is seen in the Pacific circa 1966. Notice a Prestonian Class training frigate in the background. Notice the folded down jackstay bracket on the bow and awning stanchions on the flag deck, probably soon before entering a foreign port in this image apparently from a ship that had just been alongside or conducting maneuver.
The survey also indicates that 72% of Canadians believe that in the last five years, veterans have faced difficulties making the transition to civilian jobs. In fact, 54% of respondents believe it is more difficult for today’s veterans to find civilian jobs than it was for veterans of the first and second world wars. As well, nearly 70% of respondents believe that the skills of today’s veterans are relevant and transferable.
Finally, the national survey revealed that 81% of Canadians think first of veterans of the first and second world wars on Remembrance Day, rather than veterans of more recent conflicts.
