"It would seem to be most unfortunate," Lieutenant-Commander Alan Easton wrote in his escort's Report of Proceedings, "that the senior officer was absent at the critical time as far as members of his own group were concerned. Easton's ship and what remained of C.3 "were left rather on a limb…" after the destroyers departed on the Grand Banks due to lack of fuel.

That 'Soul' was shaped and imparted to Sackville and to the Navy by the leadership, spirit and actions of men like Alan Easton, her very successful early captain, and the ship's companies that they led.

HMCS Sackville is the last of Canada's 123 corvettes, one of many convoy escort vessels built in Canada and the United Kingdom during WW II. She is Canada's oldest fighting warship and has been our official Naval Memorial since 1985.

In the real August of 1942, Sackville (skippered by Lieutenant Commander Alan Easton) fought three U-boats in thirty-six hours: she blew U-43 out of the water, ran down U-704 (scaring her out of the battle area), and did indeed face the real U-552. In that final fight, the submarine managed to escape, but not before being nearly crippled by Sackville's deck gun and depth charges. Obviously, our fictional Sackville had an eventful August as well -- jousting, anyone? -- though I won't spoil that here. I just hope she does justice to her real namesake.

The Funeral of Lieutenant-Commander Alan Easton

It is especially difficult today, when the civilised world is confronting the menace and all too deadly reality of world-wide terrorism, to think back to a time 60 years ago, when our world was faced with an even greater peril, one that could have set the course of civilisation back a thousand years. That threat from Nazi Germany was confronted, challenged and defeated by our nations and brave men and women, such as Lieutenant-Commander Alan Easton, Distinguished Service Cross, Royal Canadian Naval Reserve.
