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.

Good hunting

Phil

Thank you Phil,

AS.7 you say was a convoy for Red Sea in 1942. Not the AS.7 I'm looking for, this was late November 1940.
