On the eve of Remembrance Day, CBC’s popular Battle of the Blades show took time to honour those who served for their country. All branches of Canada’s Armed Forces were represented at the live taping of the show, including 89 year old Able Seaman John ‘Jack’ Murray. Jack joined the Royal Canadian Navy in 1942 at age 18, and was posted to the HMCS New Liskard, a new minesweeping vessel based out of Halifax.
