Sir William’s next ship is HMS Witherington. He carries out a number of convoys on her. He also talks about another of Churchill’s ideas which he’s glad doesn’t come to anything [it involves a lot of petrol and a fair wind]. He also recalls the Portsmouth blitz. The Witherington is in harbour at the time and despite fire and bombs all around, she is unscathed.
