1968 - A veteran of 44 years' service with the Department of Transport. Nelson Smith has retired as chief examiner in the Vancouver radio regulations office.

 

After some experience in one of the early broadcasting stations in Victoria, Nelson entered government service as a radio operator at Tofino Lifeboat Station on November 12, 1923, and served at Bamfield Lifeboat Station, Estevan Point and Pachena Point.

 

He later moved to Gonzales Hill and for the next 10 years worked at most of the west coast marine radio stations.

 

Ultimately, after temporary duty as a radio inspector, Nelson joined the regional office where he became the chief examiner and dispenser of amateur call signs and extracts from the regulations.

 

Nelson now intends to do a little more fishing and maybe take a part time job if it doesn't interfere with his hobbies. He says he plans to live in "D.O.T. Pensioners' Heaven-Victoria."
