These three men had been very kind to contribute (share) their wartime experience in this publication. They all had been involved in escorting convoys during the dangerous supply routes to Murmansk, which has an ice free port in the northern part of Russia (Kola Peninsula). This route was only operational during winter time, as during the summer period it never gets dark in arctic areas (and consequently, the Germans could too easily strike these slow ships).
