Hugh Dunbar Sutherland Russel attended Royal Roads January to April in 1941, in the first class of RCNVR Special Entry cadets. The first five classes were also known informally as ‘90 Day wonders’, as their wartime training at HMCS Royal Roads was just over 3 months. Born 11 March, 1916, Russel was a surveyor before joining the RCNVR. After completing training in Canada, he was loaned to the Royal Navy. He is presumed to have lost his life on 12 December, 1942 when the submarine in which he was serving in the Mediterranean was posted missing, overdue.
