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! Cheers Brian ....Read More.brian on 3rd November 2016 07:23:15
