Makes yacht trip

Here’s a photograph from the June 1 1933 edition of the Toronto Daily Star of a young man who was going to sail around the coasts of France and Spain:

Woodburn S. Thomson served on a number of Canadian Navy ships during the Second World War, rising to the rank of Lieutenant. He eventually moved to the town of Ayr in the county of Waterloo, passing away there in 1989.

I found an obituary for his wife, who passed away in 2005. She is buried next to him in Ayr.
