Emigration to Canada 1967

Emmigration to Canada

1967-to Present

Susan Dove & I married Sept. 1967 and immediately emigrated . We boarded SS Oriana at Southampton bound for Montreal . On arrival we took the Expo Special train to Kamloops BC.  where we were met by my sister Kate & Husband Jacques who then showed us the wonders of our new home in .to the Okanagan Valley BC Canada . Sue & I settled in Rutland and I worked at the White Western Star Truck plant as an engineering design draftsman. so also soon found work as a medical librarian. We bought our first house in 1968 at 1420 Ivans Ave .Kelowna.

Canada has been very good to me and apart from a brief spell in UK. I am now happily retired living on Vancouver Island.
