    It has been a fairly good year in the corps, we had a great seamanship weekend at Stormont, had a pretty good Battle of the Atlantic parade and we still have annual, which is certainly going to be good. but last night, (our parade night) I had high hopes that I would finally get that Petty-Officer 1st class promotion that I have been waiting for, and then out of the blue not only do I end up getting that PO1 promotion but I also found out that I got into Cheif Botswains Mate at HMCS Quadra, I am ...
