F. E. Grubb fonds

  • CA UVICARCH SC375
  • Fonds
  • 1941 - 1999

The fonds consists of a carbon typescript of the statement made by Lt. Grubb, with his handwritten correction. Also included is typescript transcription made by D.M. Grubb, who has added his analysis of points in the statement. Lieutenant Grubb was Commanding Officer of H.M.C.S. Moosejaw when he made this statement, likely taken by a British Navy writer (who reported "H.M.S. Moosejaw). The incident happened off the coast of Scotland. It concerned dropping depth charges on a German submarine (H.M.C.S. Chambly) and the subsequent capture of its crew, 29 by "Moosejaw" and 8 by "Chambly" (ca. 11 were lost). Grubb also reports on his lack of success in interrogating the officers. The Statement was taken in hospital where Lt. Grubb was recuperating from pneumonia as a result of his experience.
