Re: Convoy JW.53B

Hi again,

I think Komiles was not in convoy JW.53 and sailed independently.

So, the 3 merchants in convoy JW.53B were: John Laurence, James Bowie, Joseph E. Johnston.

Re: Convoy JW.53B

Thank you very much Thorsten

It seems that they were John Laurence, Joseph E. Johnston and Komiles because all three ships of this convoy returned to port shortly after they departed.

Thank you very much
