Poetry in progress
Surgeon’s Log is a poetry project that begins with the scrapbook comments of Surgeon Lt Bruce Campbell who began his naval career by meeting Winston Churchill at the Atlantic Charter. He served as ship’s doctor aboard HMCS Assiniboine and HMS Duncan during the Battle of the Atlantic, and then HMS Rapid in the Indian Ocean. About forty poems have been edited out of his words. In addition, other sets of poems will weave the background story from official sources and other accounts.
