May 15 and 16, 1943 – Merton’s War Diary

May 15 and 16, 1943

Nice warm weather and calm sea.

It does not get any simpler than this I suppose.

An Atlantic convoy underway as seen from a Royal Air Force Short Sunderland flying boat.

I would guess that there was a fair bit of tension and nerves on any voyage such as this with the threat of German U-Boats.  At least the calmness gave all one less thing to worry about.

In 1943 and 1944,  my Grandfather Merton Young traveled to Greenland while working for the Merritt-Chapman & Scott Company.  He wrote a brief diary of his journey and this is a piece of that story.
