Darrel is a true Haligonian hero. He was a member of his community volunteer firefighting team when the tanker he was in rolled, killing two of his friends and team members. He then went onto serving as a member of the Princess Louises Fusilliers, where he was catastrophically injured during a training exercise. Years later, from his wheelchair, he succesfullly strove to have a PLF member killed in action recognized by having a ferry named after him. Darrel spoke to us about his story and the project to name the ferry.
