In reading about Convoy PQ17 I see that the Winston-Salem ran aground and was abandoned by her crew near Novya Zemlya islands. Later survivors from other ships helped unload some of the ship's cargo and oil so as to refloat her, and then they sailed her into port, she being the last ship to make port. About two months later in September of 1942 she sailed out of Russia safely back to Britain. Did her crew bring her back? What happened to them?
