Bat­tle of the At­lantic Mu­seum in Dun­can Closes March 1st

RCN News - - News - By John We­ber

The Bat­tle of At­lantic “Mu­seum” in Dun­can, B.C. owned by Ge­orge Cruick­shank closed March 1st. The mu­seum's web­site was also shut down at that time.

It was a great and unique lit­tle Cana­dian naval mu­seum with many ar­ti­facts from the Ger­man Navy, but was never re­ally “open" to the public -- all the tours in the past few years have been “by ap­point­ment” only.

Ge­orge will keep some “stuff”, but many items will be sold or re­turned to donors. The full-size replica of the U -889 bridge will be torn down. (too bad, so sad).

A large part of his Cana­dian sub­ma­rine ar­ti­fact dis­play will be do­nated to the Naval and Mil­i­tary Mu­seum at HMCS Naden and may be put on dis­play in their per­ma­nent Cana­dian sub­ma­rine history dis­play.

I will move some of his web­site pages to my web­site (web­ber­swar­ships.ca) in May.

It was a big part of Ge­orge’s life, how­ever, it was tak­ing over his time.
