I think we are going to have to make you an honorary Canuck Jim. You seem to enjoy illustrating our history! Not going to try for the Mars bar though. Don't remember the names.

Nice job on this - how much sketch work do you do in advance of a piece like this?

None.
Compass Rose, and Saltash Castle . I'll give my self a Creme Egg as its Easter, instead of the Mars Bar.
When I was a boy at the end of the war, one of our neighbours was a Corvette man. Although an Irishnam he served on a ship maned almost entirely by Newfies. So maybe his stories have influenced me.
Besides when researching The Battle of The Atlantic (the longest campaign of the second WW.) it is difficult not to come across Canadian ships and crews.

Ps. I oft times treat my self to some 'Moose Milk'.
