Loch Ewe in NW Scotland...anyone been?

Jump to last reply

I have come across some rather fascinating history of the Loch recently, while engaging in some research of the period 1941-44.

For about two of those memorable years, the Loch played a major role in moving critical supplies to the Russian war effort ...to the Arctic port of Murmansk, and occasionally Archangelsk. It became the staging area for the escorting Canadian, British and US warships, and their convoy of cargo vessels before they sailed into the treacherous waters (infested with U-boats, German air attacks from their Norwegian and Finnish bases, snow and ice storms and generally some of the roughest waters in the world). For the earlier days of the effort, staging took place in both Iceland and Norway's remote Jan Mayen Island, east of Greenland. and north of Iceland. Thought you might like to know about this if traveling in the area of Loch Ewe.
