Recently, Chick, a 95 year old veteran from Sidney, and his wife, Nancy took a ride with Wanda, a CWAS Pilot. Chick was full of stories on the ride. One of the best was how he used to run RimPac Diving out of Sidney. RimPac were integral to pulling up the propeller from the sunken ferry, Iroquois. On 10 April 1911, Iroquois was overloaded with poorly secured cargo and sank in a heavy storm when the cargo shifted as she left Sidney. At least 21 people were killed and Iroquois′ captain was charged with, but acquitted of, manslaughter. In 1980, Iroquois′ propeller was salvaged. It is part of a memorial in Iroquois Park in Sidney which features the prop and anchor. What wonders we learn while pedalling about Sidney! Thanks, Chick!
