Alexander Robertson  RCNVR   served on the K233, I believe in 1942/1943. Dad delisted from the navy in 1946 and at that time he was a Chief Petty Officer. He also served on board K176, which was the HMCS Kamloops. Dad entered the service in 1941 and enlisted in Montreal at HMCS Donnacona.  This info is per his son Doug (Photo of Alex Below)
