Arctic Convoys, HMS Zambesi and a Scottish great-grandfather’s unpublished autobiography
Posted on July 10, 2010 by newsroom
I refer to the above-mentioned article (last paragraph)which has just recently been brought to my attention, and on which I’d like to comment, albeit somewhat belatedly
I am the person to whom Roy Elwood refers, and I should like to point out that I was not in the least unnerved to meet Derek Hirst on the ship. Why should I have been – the presentation to which Roy refers (and I understand, has a copy of, something that was most certainly not authorised by me)was not written and produced until more than a year after Derek Hirst and I met aboard the ship!
The implication that Derek and I did not get on well at the outset, is absolutely and totally untrue. The reverse was the case in fact!
