The Shearwater Aviation Museum being under renovation, a three day Canadian Naval Air Remembers (CANAR) weekend is being held in Hamilton on the 3rd, 4th and 5th of May at Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum and includes attendance at the Battle of Atlantic commemoration with HMCS STAR alongside HMCS HAIDA on Battle of Atlantic Sunday, 5 May. The Friday Meet and Greet coincides with the Battle of Atlantic Mess Dinner being hosted at LIUNA Station by the Hamilton Naval Association and HMCS STAR.

Canada has a lengthy and distinguished connection with naval air beginning in the First World War and continuing to the present day. The three-day Canadian Naval Air Remembers (CANAR) weekend provides us with an opportunity to rejoin our former shipmates and their families at a museum dedicated to Canada’s military aviation heritage. It is open to all military, Honoraries, and civilian personnel who served at sea or were involved in naval air, including their immediate families.

In addition to a Meet & Greet reception on Friday evening, Saturday will feature presentations on naval aircraft in the museum’s collection as well as the unveiling of a mock-up of a Commemorative Memorial dedicated to those that lost their lives in Canadian naval air operations over the years. Saturday will conclude with a Gala Dinner in the CWHM hangar. On Sunday, 5 May, you are invited to join HMCS Star at their Battle of the Atlantic service alongside the HMCS Haida National Historic Site.

Further details are available from the Shearwater Aviation Museum.
