Identity Bracelet, Robert Bush
This sterling silver identity bracelet belonged to Robert Bush, who spent much of the Second World War serving in Canada's merchant navy.
The bracelet bears the merchant navy crest (top centre) as well as Bush's name (bottom). In the first years of the war, Bush served in two British ships that were torpedoed, another one that was attacked by aircraft, and a fourth that was sunk by a mine. After transferring to Canada's merchant navy in 1941, he served in the SS Lady Rodney, as well as in the hospital ship Lady Nelson, and remained a merchant mariner on the Great Lakes until 1948.
