Shields, WE

Walter Edward Shields 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 21 April, 1917, Shields was training to become a lawyer before joining the RCNVR. On completion of training, he joined HMCS Windflower, which was sunk on 7 December, 1941. Shields was one of 23 men who lost their lives in the incident.
