Link does not work.

Coincidentally, I have been trying to get my stepdaughter to locate tapes her father made in the 1960s when he was a young RCN Lt, and posted to Halifax. He interviewed and taped the interviews on reel to reel rolls in a seniors home of survivors of the explosion who had been children when it happened. I first asked for them 3 years ago, and again this past summer, so I wouldn't hold my breath. The NS Archive definitely want copies if I can get my hands on them ...... Cheers anyway, BT
