Officers, SS Stanley Park
David McMillan (centre) and officer cadets Bob Pethick (left) and Doug McPherson (right) pose on V-E Day in Saint John, New Brunswick.
All three are standing beside the ship's 4-inch gun, and Pethick is holding the ship's cat, Stan. While McMillan wears a service dress uniform, including a double-breasted jacket, the two cadets wear dark blue battledress uniforms like those issued to the Royal Canadian Navy.
