Donna Portree provided me some fascinating information about her father, who was awarded the DSM for his actions in August of 1942 during the engagement between HMCS ASSINBOINE and U-210.   Please see HMCS STAR/Orders, Decorations and Medals/ERA 4/C Donald Portree for details.

  1. Hi Neil,
    I took a walk down to 230 King St E to day & there are still apartments above the store – the guy renting the commercial space thinks there are 4…If the walls could talk there would be some interesting stories. Some time ago I spoke with the women renting at the Hunter St address (I remember living there) & she said that when they peeled back wall paper to redo the walls they found some old signatures & they seem to be from WW1 – of lads going to the front…aye yours Donna
