We have a photo of a salute with Bombardier Doug Johnston as detachment commander. We're not sure of the date but seeing as how Doug was promoted Bombardier on 1 April 1976 and promoted Master Bombardier 1 December 1976, it safe to assume that the salute took place in 1976. If that's Private Barry Cotter as his #3 the date is narrowed down to when Barry was enrolled on 24 March 1976 and when he was qualified Gunner on 3 August 1976. The final bit of information would be that the salute is taking place on the north side of Stanley Park in order to greet a visiting naval ship. Wonder which one?
