Mr. Speaker, for the second year in a row an Aurora crew from CFB Greenwood in my riding of Annapolis Valley-Hants has won the Fincastle Trophy.
At a recent competition in New Zealand our Canadian contingent beat out crews from Australia, Great Britain and New Zealand in a competition testing the surveillance skills of maritime patrol crews.
As well, the Aurora crew won the Fellowship Trophy, awarded for teamwork and professionalism, and the Maintenance Trophy for professionalism and dedication to duty.
I am extremely proud of the accomplishments of these Canadian Armed Forces members. They are excellent ambassadors for our country. I believe their achievements are representative of the teamwork, professionalism and dedication to excellence Canadian forces are known for both at home and abroad.
