Spike joined RMC in the fall of 1953 (3929). I believe he left to go to the
RN engineering training in the UK. I never knew him at all well. He did not
participate in the activities of the 1957 RMC Ottawa folks.

Spike was in 3 Squadron as was I.
He was one of the last six to go to the RN after second year.
Myself, Spike, Harry Coutts and Ron Banning from RMC and Ed Healey and Denis
Boyle from Royal Roads.
Spike was a great partyer liked by everyone in the squadron.
He would turn his cabin into a night club for example.
