Leonard W. Murray at the Royal Canadian Navy Barracks, Halifax

Lieutenant-Commander Leonard W. Murray stands outside the Royal Canadian Navy's Halifax barracks.

This photograph was likely taken between 1925 and 1927, during Murray's time at HMCS Stadacona, the navy's barracks and main training facility in Halifax. Visible beside him is the ship's bell of HMCS Niobe, moved here after the ship was scrapped. Until it was damaged by the Halifax Explosion in 1917, this building had housed the Royal Naval College of Canada, where Murray had lived and studied as part of the class of 1912.
