A corking good read by a man who served on the Murmansk convoy runs of 1944 and 1945. Not a lot of explosions but just the day-to-day routine of men doing a dangerous and uncomfortable task, as told by a literate and sympathetic companion. Mr. Shelton, if you happen to read this, know that my father may have been on one of those gasoline tankers, an 18 year old merchant seaman from New Orleans, LA who served on T2 Wood Lake and others. I know it gave him a feeling of security to see the Vindex, the Nabob, the Bickerton, the Loch Shin, the Honeysuckle, and all the other ships of our two valiant navies, in escort. May it be that the ships of Great Britain and the United States always fight together.
