You guys are awesome! This forum reminds me a lot of our local windsurfing/kiting page, bigwavedave.ca for having an aweful lot of 'stoke' (which is probably a good thing on a site mostly devoted to steamships!)and volunteer efforts creating a virtual on-line community.
I've done a moderate amount of archival research, but never on specific ship movements (apart from where they sank as potential archaeological sites!) - I'm unfamiliar with the Sailing Telegrams, Commodore's notes, and movement cards. Are these explained on the site somewhere?
And are the excorts listed somewhere? My mom bought me Morrison's massive tome about the Merchant Navy and the Battle of the Atlantic for Christmas last year, but it pretty much ends in 1943. Is there a parallel web site to this one regarding excorts for the convoys?
