Empress of Ireland - The Model

Hello. My name is Ron Marsh. I am here today at Pier 21 Immigration Museum to talk about the Empress of Ireland, a model which I built.

I was born and brought up in Halifax. I was the son of a sailor and I worked 38 years for the navy in DND. I was not in the navy. I was a civilian mechanic. So being around ships that long, I have an affinity for ships.
