Re: Professor Eric Grove

Thankyou Gents for your contributions.
I have now acquired another source of Naval History.
He was a remarkable person.

Professor Eric Grove

Just picked up today:
Professor Eric Grove died 15 April 2021.
He was an acknowledged expert of Naval History, with many Television appearances.
He had connections with the RN college at Dartmouth, US Naval Academy Annapolis, University of Wollongong, Australia.
He will be missed.

Greetings All
It must be a long time since the Forum has been so quiet.
I trust that this interlude has not been too onerous.

My best wishes to you all, and trust that it will not be too long before things are buzzing again.

Re: Convoy AT.36

Greetings Jordi
Are you sure of the Convoy Number?
Hague has AT36 and A36M,but they do not match your query.
One refers to the Empress of Scotland from Halifax to the Clyde.

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.
