    Comments: I've been reading the Canberra Assoc. newsletter and was curious about the webpage which took me here. I've not looked at the entire offering, but am impressed with the USS CA 70 photo. It brought back memories. I was standing on the starboard side at the quarterdeck just forward of where the torpedo hit. Cliff

    Comments: I was onboard Canberra in '62 to the Chestnut Line for the blockade. I came with her and a great bunch of guys through the Canal and to the west coast. I have tried to find out where she is, hopefully just mothballed. She was an outstanding ship with outstanding sailors.

    Comments: GMM in 8th Div. on the Canberra CAG-2 out of Norfolk, later switched to ET and served on the West coast. Several other ships and commands. Great site. I was onboard during the time the CAG-2 pictures shown in the site were taken. I think that's me with the headphones on near launcher #2. I worked on that launcher.
