IIt is my sad duty to pass the news of the passing of Comrade Doug Dinsmore. Doug was a very active member of branch 554 for a number of years holding a variety of chairs as well as a being multiple term past president.

A graveside service will be held at the National Military Cemetery on 19 Aug at 1100 hours.

Stand down sailor, Your watch is done, the danger over.

You were trained well to obey each demand, so take this and heed this final command. Rest your body, close your eyes as we weep the loss when a good sailor dies. Bask in peace, that you can enjoy, embrace it for us, let it too be our joy. The life you have lived will constantly remind and bring on a smile to those you leave behind. We thank you for your serving. Your loyalty stood true, and hope someday we will meet up with you. RIP

Don Ferrera
President, RCL 554 (Rockland, Ontario)
