In March "41, the Otter caught fire in the North Atlantic and sank with the loss of 22 lives. After survivor`s leave he sailed in the Sunbeam. In 1941 he joined the corvette Louisberg. This ship, while on the famous "Newfie-Derry" run was less than a ¼ mile from the Spikenard, when it was torpedoed. "It was generally thought by our crew," George recalled, "that the fish was meant for us." In 1943 George transferred to the Navy Signal School in Quebec. He was Sergeant-at-Arms for 12 years at Royal Canadian Legion Branch #4 Verdun. For many years he led parades through Montreal. One friend recalls the remark made by another friend when George White was leading a parade of several hundred veterans down St. Catherine Street. He said, "Look at all those Canadians following a Newfoundlander!" In May 2000 George made is last trip to Grand Falls when he and North Atlantic Convoy veterans came to St. John`s to commemorate the Battle of the North Atlantic. The Montreal White Ensign Naval Group gathered for a service at St. Willibrord`s Church and held a reception in his honor for his shipmates and friends to share memories of him. Relatives and friends from St. John`s and Labrador also gathered in St. John`s. "Lead them on in the parades of the next world George! We`ll miss you Sailor but we`ll not forget you." Donations to the Canadian Cancer Society and/or St. Willibrord`s Restoration Fund, c/o Fr. Joseph Cameron, 351 Willibrord Avenue, Verdun, H4G 2T7.
