Sir William recalls in fantastic detail his recollections of the ill-feted convoy PQ17. Despite an upbeat Admiralty pep talk it’s another moment in his career that still visibly troubles him. He goes onto talk about PQ18 and both the rescue of SS Macbeth and witnessing others that weren’t so lucky.
