There is somewhat of a mystery surrounding the Russian ship Rodina. A writer named Lippman who authored a history of 'WWII 55 years later' stated that the Rodina carried family members of Russian diplomats stationed in Britain. If that is true, then why didn't the Rodina depart earlier with that section of the convoy bound for Loch Ewe rather than travel on to Iceland with the American ships? Maybe the family members were going to get off the ship in Iceland and the Rodina was going to continue on to the US to pick up cargo. In any case, Russia has more recently sent a team to Iceland to investigate the sunken wrecks. I wonder how many people from the Rodina were killed?
