Admiral Walter Hose
1875 – 1965


Without the tenacity of Walter Hose, it is debatable
whether Canada's Navy would even exist today, much
less be on the verge of celebrating its first century.
Rear Admiral Hose fought many battles to ensure the
survival of the fledgling Royal Canadian Navy, in his
words "the Ugly Duckling" of Canadian National Defence.
Hose's pivotal part in developing a strong navy, and a
strong force of naval reservists, remains an important legacy.
