The Convoy Commodore

 

WWII

The Battle of the Atlantic is in its early stages as a vital convoy steams away from war-torn Britain, bound for Halifax, Nova Scotia, to bring back urgently needed supplies: armour, ammunition, foodstuffs – and, above all, the troops of a Canadian division to reinforce the embattled British army.

This is the story of the convoy and it's commodore, John Mason Kemp, mobilized from the liners for war service with the Royal Navy. It is also the story of an unlikely assortment of people brought together by the war: the ship's peacetime master; Kemp's young assistant; and the naval gunnery 'rates' manning the defensive armament; of the lives and loves and hates and memories of peacetime glitter among the many and varied men and women below decks.
