Re: Convoy AS.7

Greetings Jordi
Arnold Hague on www.convoyweb.org.uk gives two options for AS7.
AS7 has Aquitania only.
AS7/1 states departure 28 11 1940, arrival 02 12 1940. But no further details of vessels.

Strangely, Cunningham's book and The War at Sea have very little to say on Spartavento.

Re: Shetland Bus

Shetland Bus From a brief look in the book “Shetland Bus” by David Howarth there is no indication of any contact with HMS Ambrose. It will take a little longer to dig further.
