Casey, Gord

Gord Casey served in the Royal Canadian Navy during World War Two, where he was one of many sailors playing a role in the Battle of the Atlantic.  Gord saw action on a variety of ships, where he protected convoys as cargo ships brought vital supplies to the European theatre of war.  Along the way Gord experienced the many facets of the naval war; his ships confronted and chased many U-boats, and he saw ships under his protection sunk.  Gord also remembers the storms on the Atlantic, and the time in port, scenes which he compellingly shares here.

Gord visited us at Crestwood in February 2017, along with Craig Kingsley, whose story is also featured on this page.  Gord was interviewed by Crestwood students Juliu de Gauw, Erik Usher and Arielle Meyer.
