Centennial Photos

Submarine Week in Victoria, BC, was blessed with sunshine as over a hundred retired submariners and guests, as well as the Submarine Force attended events between August 5 and 8, 2014. These included a lunch at the Union Club where it all began in 1914, the re-dedication of the submarine cairn, a banquet with the Lieutenant Governor of BC, and much more.

 

I was asked to take photographs and created five Google albums of all the events except the final BBQ. I also have permission to pass along the photos taken by MARPAC Imaging Services. The links are below the following sample images. Please enjoy them and download any photos you would like to keep by clicking on the albums' thumbnails to get to the big image and then right-clicking on it to save to your hard drive.
