This spike was driven into the deck by LCdr Bert Shadforth on the Crow’s Nest’s opening night in January 1942. LCdr Shadforth was the Commanding Officer of HMCS Spikenard, and the winner of the nail driving contest. The ship was lost a few weeks later. Her captain, all her officers and a good many of her crew were lost with it.
