Greetings Platon

I have come across what appears to be work on her thesis by a student at Southampton University that may be helpful. You can download it.
I will try to attach the address for you.
Best wishes

Thankyou Gents for your contributions.

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.

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.
