Esquimalt Naval and Military Museum

Here is a chance to help catalog a number of photographs received by the Esquimalt Naval and Military Museum located at the naval base at Esquimalt, British Columbia, Canada. Over the years the museum has accumulated a large number of warship photographs that were not labeled or labeled incorrectly. The museum would appreciate any assistance rendered in their efforts to correctly identify and catalog these images for digital storage. new2.gif (148 bytes)
