Apparently, Cartier had a band and needed some players. Andre volunteered to play the drums even though he had never played before. From Drake, Andrea was drafted to Athabaskan. He had the honour of hoisting her White Ensign for the first time.

Athabaskan became a very busy ship working in close support with the RN on routine patrols and various duties in the North Sea, the Atlantic, and the Arctic Oceans. In mid Athabaskan with other RN units made five trips to the Bay of Biscay area conducting escort duties, patrols, rescue operations, and hunting for enemy U-Boats.
Andre remembers the hit by a Glider-Bomb shortly before Five of these Dorniers singled out the Athabaskan and dove toward her through intense anti-aircraft fire. One of their bombs glided toward Athabaskan in a perfect line, passed completely trough the hull and exploded in the water.
The explosion literally wrecked the forward part of the ship making many holes in the hull and starting many fires. It killed five men, seriously wounded twelve others, knocked out the Central Control System for the guns, and badly damaged the Radar and Communications Systems.
The Egret was swept away in smoke and flames. Within minutes Athabaskan was firing again, back in the fray. Captain Miles elected to take the damaged ship to Plymouth for repairs instead of Gibraltar.
He felt that repairs could be effected much more quickly in England. Men were detailed to move the wounded into Sick Bay and the Wardroom. Many of them were badly burned, some were missing limbs, and one had lost both feet.
He survived and became a station agent in Winnipeg. Three months later, repairs and work-ups completed, Athabaskan goes back to war now commanded by Lcdr.
Athabaskan joins three other Canadian Tribal Class Destroyers: Iroquois, Huron, and Haida. In January Athabaskan, Huron, and Haida began patrol and escort duties in the English Channel and later the Iroquois, Haida, and Athabaskan took part in a carrier based air strike on shipping off the Norwegian coast.
With the British Forces the three Canadian Destroyers began a series of operations in preparation for D-Day by harassing German convoys and screening Allied mine-laying operations.
During this operation Andre was closed up at his position on a 20mm Twin Oerlikon Mounting. The Athabaskan came alongside the German Destroyer at about a distance of feet and fired at the German ship until it was sunk. Starshells are fired, they blossomed to light and the action begins.
The Elbing Class Destroyers returned the combined gun fire of the Athabaskan and Haida, they lay down smoke-screen, and turn away.
As these ships, the T and T turned away each fired six torpedoes. Almost immediately there was a direct hit by one of the torpedoes which blew the stern off the Athabaskan and started fires everywhere.
