Get a copy of our latest publication, the third edition of Canada’s Admirals and Commodores! This book chronicles the careers of close to three hundred flag and general officers who have served at some point in our navy since May 1910. It is not about what these people were like, but rather what they did. This listing is an update and revision of the edition first published by the Maritime Museum of BC in 1994, and remains true to the original intent – to bring together, in one concise publication, the biographical information on officers whose careers culminated in promotion to the rank of Commodore or Admiral or military equivalent while serving in the Canadian Armed Forces.

The book costs $30.00 plus tax and any necessary shipping.

You can order a copy today by calling us at 250-385-4222 ext. 102, or you can request a copy by email from Ann Jones at
