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.
