We were especially fortunate to have HMS Caledon, a British cruiser, along in convoy UGS-40 when we were attacked by MANY German aircraft. Caledon did a terrific job in helping save our convoy from serious losses.
Also, 3 or 4 of us once were invited some British sailors to visit their ship in Algiers. It was a battleship and I can't remember the name! It was an interesting visit.
The Brits really liked our cigarettes and theirs were horrible!
There must be a zillion memories...IF we can hold out for a few more years perhaps more and more of them will surface!!!
