Here is Albert Berry at the new Almonte monitoring station

in 1962 showing the General Radio frequency measuring equipment

to Headquarters brass ( Nixon, W. Smith and deNiverville).

 

Ron Powers recalls that Bert was OIC of Almonte when I was posted in march of 1965. He lived in Ottawa and was not a talkative person . Ron adds that before joining the Department, Bert was in the merchant marine before  the war, then moved to the met radio circuits in Dorval for traffic with EIP/ Shannon, then went to the Experimental farm to monitor the german sub-marines. He also was up north possibly to Mould Bay. He was a fine man and a good boss.
