Comments: I was a radio operator on HMCS Nootka in 1952..
I spent a couple of days onboard "Firecrest"
while in the operational area. I just wondered if anyone on Firescrest remembers. I spent time onboard sending radio messages while the Destroyer went elsewhere..It was hoped to dupe the locals in that the destroyer was still there.
