No-Badge Killick is a powerful coming-of-age story set at a critical time in Canada's history. As a young sailor Gord Hunter dealt with Soviet Spy ships, sailed in a mixed-nation NATO Squadron showing off Canada's new flag, served on rusting frigates, newer Canadian built destroyer escorts, and British built submarines. This book shares the challenges and camaraderie, the power of the ocean, and the beauty of flying fish, whales and sharks, all from the perspective of a regular seaman living and working in the lower decks.
