“A Light-haired Wren with a Pixie Smile is Going to London to See The Queen,” the newspaper headline gushed. Earlier, on a rainy day in Victoria, I had been summoned to the office of the manning commander of Canada’s Pacific Fleet. When he announced my good fortune, my knees turned to water. “Sir,” I stammered, “do you mind if I have a chair?”
