Ronald Lewis, Rhine Veteran
Ronald was born in Calgary Alberta on July 26th, 1925. He served with the Royal Canadian Naval Reserve on board the HMCS Eastivew, as well as Motor Torpedo Boat 748 during the Second World War.
He was a telegrapher/medic.
One of the worst things was the boats were made of mahogany plywood. The shells would go through the boat and there would be slivers of mahogany flying through the air, and they were always spinning like propellers. If they got into you, they dug in pretty good. They were actually a worse wound than the bullets.
