H.M.C.S. Uganda: A/B Gordon Sparrow; A/B Harold Jessop; A/B Harold Raesler
Apr 1945 Gerald Milne Moses

H.M.C.S. Uganda: A/B Gordon Sparrow; A/B Harold Jessop; A/B Harold Raesler

Pacific Ocean

Here is a copy of the original photo of my father, Harold James Jessop on
the HMCS Uganda. Handwritten on the back of the photo reads, 4" Gun Crew,
Leyte Phillippines, March 1945. There is a label attached which says the
National Archives of Canada. My father is the gentleman in the middle with
the white hood, holding his gloves. I hope you enjoy this photograph, I
certainly treasure it.
Take care,
Deb Gignac
Possibly "Listening to a news report during a lull in action stations in the Pacific are these three ratings of H.M.C.S. Uganda: A/B Gordon Sparrow; A/B Harold Jessop; A/B Harold Raesler"

Hi, Deb. Thanks again for this picture. Pbase, the website that hosts these pictures takes the picture title from the picture file name unless I change it.
What would you like the picture title to be? Your choice...

Hi Eric:
I am curious as to how did you know my father's nickname was "Sam"? I noticed you posted it under his picture.
Deb
