Your weekly national and international naval news for the week of September 17th, 2021
Edition – 427 “It is much easier being an insurgent or a revolutionary than being a governor… The Taliban is an extraordinarily competent, sophisticated, and successful insurgency… But it’s still nonetheless very unprepared to be running a country like Afghanistan in the 21st century.” 3 September 2021, Vanda Felbab-Brown, Horns of a Dilemma podcast from War on the Rocks and Texas National Security Review

Editor – A NAC member Fraser McKee made a comment by email after seeing a YouTube video: “Being a ‘TAS’ (torpedo & anti-submarine) long course specialist, CAPT Johnny Walker is a particular hero of mine. His 2 Escort Groups were eventually credited with sinking 23 U-boats, 7 by Walker himself commanding the successful ship, and he died in mid-1944.” I couldn’t locate the specific video Fraser addressed but I did find these three videos that capture the essence:
- Frederic John Walker (Editor – a video but really a 15:20 min account)
- U-Boat Killers (1944) (Editor – 3:04 min video)
- Captain Walker’s Burial At Sea (1944) (Editor – silent and poignant 2:36 min video)

The sinking kills 188 of those aboard, including Biards and three other Canadians, the first Canadian casualties of the Second World War.
- 3 September 1939 Britain declares war on Germany two days after the Nazi invasion of Poland; France follows 6 hours later, and then Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and Canada on week later. On September 5, 1939, the United States will proclaim neutrality.
- 3 September 1940 US President Franklin D. Roosevelt announces Lend Lease Programme, where 50 American destroyers will be traded to Britain, of which 7 go to Canada, in exchange for leases on naval and air bases in the British colonies, including St. John’s, Newfoundland, and Bermuda; Canada also agrees to shelter the destroyers in Canadian ports before they are handed over to British crews.

Wood (DD-195), USS Herndon (DD-198) and USS Welles (DD-257) arrive at Halifax, Nova Scotia. These are the first of the “flushdeck” destroyers to be transferred under the “Destroyers-For-Bases” deal. Contrary to popular opinion, none of the eight ships to be transferred were taken directly from reserve status and handed over to the RN. All eight ships had been recommissioned at least during 1939 and all had been engaged in operations on the neutrality patrols. Two ships were recommissioned considerably earlier and had served for extended periods with both the US Atlantic and Pacific Fleets: Crowninshield (1930) and Buchanan (1934). All eight destroyers were decommissioned from the USN on 09 Sep and commissioned into the RN on the same day. USS Crowninshield was commissioned as HMS Chelsea (I35). She reached Devonport, England, on 28 Sep 1940 and was assigned to the Sixth Escort Group, Western Approaches Command, for local escort duty. In Nov 42, Chelsea became one of eight ‘flushdeckers’ lent to the RCN. She served with Canadian forces until the Dec 43, operated with both the Mid-Ocean Escort Force and Western Escort Forces. Chelsea returned to Londonderry, Northern Ireland, on 26 Dec 43 and, in early 44, was reduced to reserve status in the Tyne estuary. On 16 Jul 44, she was transferred to Russia and renamed Derskni.
