Rarely can something as common as a kiss be described as “history in the making,” but the lip-lock pictured above is believed to be a first for the Royal Canadian Navy.

As a matter of tradition, sea vessels returning to the Canadian homeland commemorate the moment with a “first kiss.” A sailor is chosen in a raffle to be the first off the ship — a notable honor given the many months at sea — where a loved one awaits with open arms and puckered lips.

In this case that sailor was Master Seaman (tee-hee) Francis Legare, and he planted a passionate kiss on his hot bearded partner, Corey Vautour (below), who’d been excitedly waiting on the dock below.

“I have been away for 255 days, so it feels great,” Legare said. “I am speechless.”

Besides the overwhelmingly tender moment between the reunited sweethearts, the best part is the crowd’s reaction. In the below video, you’ll hear a chorus of cheers — a clear sign of the times. You don’t have to reach too far back to a time when this would not have been received with such enthusiasm.

“We are reflective of society and we do recruit across all across society,” Rear Admiral Gilles Couturier, commander of the Pacific Navy, said. “If we don’t adapt, we won’t have any sailors joining.”
