Staff of Naval Member, Canadian Joint Staff Mission, August 1943
In this August 1943 photograph, Rear-Admiral Victor Brodeur (front centre), Canada's naval representative in Washington, poses with his staff.
As the naval member of the Canadian Joint Staff Mission in Washington, Brodeur served alongside counterparts from the Canadian Army and the Royal Canadian Air Force, representing Canadian interests. In addition to being a necessary element of inter-Allied relations, such representation also helped determine the part the Royal Canadian Navy played in the Battle of the Atlantic.
