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.
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"
