May 21 to 29, 1943 – Merton's War Diary

May 21 to 29, 1943

Anchored in by waiting for escort to continue trip.  Convoy had gone on (presumably to Europe).  Watched corvettes, destroyers freighters, etc. going in and out of harbor.

Some of the BW-25 Convoy continued to Wabana Nova Scotia while others I am sure went elsewhere.  I am curious if they were stuck aboard the ship the 8 days anchored, or if they had a chance to get off ship and stretch their legs.

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.
