Remembering Ronnie Egan

EGAN_RONNIE_WREN43-45_EIn 1942, 19-year-old Ronnie Egan read an advertisement that said, “You too can free a man to serve at sea,” and she knew the Royal Canadian Navy was the right place for her. She served in wartime Halifax and left an indelible mark on the city and the Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service there. Historian and Centennial College professor Ted Barris offers a wartime glimpse of Wren Ronnie Egan.

The full tribute to Ronnie Egan appeared in the Jan. 22, 2016, edition of the National Post.
