|Sunderland lost in Arctic circa July 1942??||Thanks for that, Peter
Food for thought!
I have just been informed that W3982 was lost NNW of the Shetlands on 21 August [U]1941[/U] but would it have remained afloat for almost a year? More investigation required!

|Sunderland lost in Arctic circa July 1942??||Hi guys
Seemingly no longer relevant, but I do note that the first Allied convoy to Russia (Dervish) sailed from Iceland on 21 August 1941! If I didn't know better, I would have 'assumed' that W3982 was part of the a/s patrol for the convoy! Especially as I thought 3./KuFlGr.406 was at Banak!
And, of course, if Alex is correct with his 'assumption' regarding the co-ordinates, then everything would seem to fit accordingly!
