Doug is a proud Chatham Rating who experiences the best and worst of the Port division. Drafted to the M-Class destroyer HMS Milne, he spends nine long months on Arctic Convoys. He talks in detail about the cold and recalls some interesting details about his life on board. He also experiences war in the Southern Oceans. It’s a great interview from a real Essex character.
