Britain's Lifeline

There's a short article "Britain's Lifeline" by Janet Dempsey in the August issue of Ancestors magazine. On convoy records, it complements my posting earlier in the year on Second World War Merchant Shipping Records.

You can now search TNA's catalogue in ADM 199 with a ship name and find all convoys in which it sailed, incoming to the UK and outbound to Russia only, with the convoy number, other ships in the convoys and date.

Additional information for your ship of interest may be found at the Convoy Web site.
